The Next Lt. Governor
My name is Ant Thornton, and I’m running to become the next Lieutenant Governor of our beautiful state.
I’m running because the corruption in Michelle Lujan Grisham’s administration is out of control.
I’ve spent my life working as an aerospace engineer — but I don’t think you have to be a rocket scientist to see that Democratic policies have failed and wrecked our state.

Dr. Thornton and his wife Glenna live in the East Mountains of Albuquerque where they are active in their local community and church. He has served on a number of Boards and supports local charitable activities including the East Mountain High School Foundation. He also spent 7 years as a Naval Reservist.
We need innovative leadership for the 21st century. A fresh approach requires leaders who demand more for our people, for our children, and for our future.
New Mexico ranks last in the country in education. We have no hope of improving and diversifying our economy without improving the education of our children.
In order to attract the best people and businesses to our state, including the healthcare providers that our people need, we must address the rising crime wave in our cities.
Any small business operating in New Mexico can tell you our state is at an extreme disadvantage compared to our neighbors because of the burden of Gross Receipts Tax (GRT).
We must protect everyone’s sacred right to vote. I will advocate for localized pilot programs in our state to utilize blockchain technology to ensure election integrity.

Yesterday we drove down to Ruidoso to speak at the Federated Republican Women of Lincoln County luncheon. Great turnout of folks. We saw some old friends, met some new ones, and had an engaging discussion about multiple topics. I always enjoy visiting Ruidoso, and I’m looking forward to going back at the end of February for the primary state convention. ... See MoreSee Less

Last night, the Republican Party of New Mexico had a 2022 Legislative Reception at the La Fonda Hotel. Some candidates and most of the House Reps were present for the festivities. The message was unity! Despite our differences and all of the various “factions” within the party, we are too small to remain fragmented. If we intend to heal this state, we must come together as a team “united” in our mission to save the state from the destructive forces of the Leftists/Progressives presently in power. ...

Let’s face facts. The Democrats don’t want voting reform to ensure every legal voter has the opportunity to cast his/her vote. They want to abuse the system by taking down every avenue that protects voters from fraud, manipulation, abuse, and coercion. They want to make it easier to cheat, harder to validate, impossible to challenge ballots.
That’s why I’m an advocate for and support Blockchain Voting where each voter and each ballot is validated and confirmed on the blockchain. One person, one vote… the way our founding fathers intended. ... See MoreSee Less
The 2021 Laffer-ALEC Report on Economic Freedom:
Grading America’s 50 Governors assigns multiple rankings, subdivided into multiple metric categories, to each of our nation’s governors. All of these overarching categorical rankings are then combined to compute an overall ranking of 1 to 50 for each governor. In all cases, a rank of 1 is most preferable and 50 is least preferable.
These rankings are the result of sophisticated analyses of each governor’s policies and the context in which each governor operates. Of course, there are many factors that may affect state policy and performance, including state legislatures, municipal officials, and federal policy changes, however, our rankings strive to isolate the actions and policy prescriptions of solely the governor. Throughout the process of ranking each metric with respect to the governor, several calculation methods are employed to control for outside influences. In most cases, state metrics are indexed to national averages to account for trends in U.S. performance, policies are recorded as those proposed by the governors themselves, and changes in performance and policy are only measured over the governors’ individual terms.
Numerous hard data sources have been compiled and done so with insight into the governor’s term and the unique circumstances related to those years, the government they inherit and the legislatures with which they partner. As noted, each governor is ranked based upon his or her time in office.
Our Governor ranked last!! Does she deserve a second term? New Mexico deserves better leadership. You can change that in November 2022. ... See MoreSee Less
