Americans for Tax Reform congratulates Mr. Gavin Clarkson for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. By signing the Pledge, he has made a written commitment to oppose and vote against all tax increases and help New Mexicans keep more of their hard-earned money. Clarkson is running in the Republican primary for New Mexico’s open Senate seat.
“I want to congratulate Gavin Clarkson for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, and in doing so, affirming his commitment to protect taxpayers in the state of New Mexico,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.
Candidates running for office often say they will not raise taxes, but tend to turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. As Pledge signers, candidates and incumbents make a written commitment to oppose any and all tax increases.
“By signing the Pledge, Gavin demonstrates that he will fight for all New Mexicans in Congress by working to keep their taxes low and grow the U.S. economy at historic rates. I challenge all candidates running for New Mexico’s Senate seat to make this important commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.
Clarkson served in the Trump administration’s Department of the Interior as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Policy and Economic Development – Indian Affairs.
The Pledge is offered to every candidate for state and federal office and to all incumbents. Nearly 1,400 elected officials, from state representatives to governors and US Senators, have signed the Pledge.
ATR will continue to follow this race closely and will provide additional updates as more candidates sign the Pledge.
