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.
Please sign-up to get updates from my campaign.
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.

The topic of this segment was what "experiences" do I bring to the job of Lt. Governor. In my response, I failed to mention that I served as a Senate Analyst during the 2021 60-Day Legislative session. I got to see how bills are made in sub-committee and I learned how to analyze bills for the Legislators. My experience would allow me to "identify and trap" bad legislation before it reaches the Senate floor.
