She is a proven, results-oriented leader who can always be counted upon to put the needs of children first. We are confident that she will continue to make expanding early learning opportunities and addressing hunger a priority for New Mexico children, regardless of economic circumstance or where they live,” said Lacey Daniell-Miller, New Mexico state manager for Save the Children Action Network. In conjunction with the endorsement, Save the Children Action Network is also set to release a six-figure digital ad campaign in support of Michelle Lujan Grisham’s bid for governor, praising her work to expand early childhood education in New Mexico. The ad will mark the beginning of a fall campaign that will encompass paid advertising and voter mobilization of targeted voters in the state. Background This is the second time that Save the Children Action Network is endorsing Michelle Lujan Grisham. SCAN supports her reelection because she fulfilled her promise to make early learning a priority in her first term at a time in which advancing this much-needed policy will allow all of New Mexico’s children to thrive and pursue opportunities in life, regardless of where they live or their financial situation.
