Another “isolated incident” of eliminationist rage that could have been fatal.


A New Mexico Hispanic Democratic candidate says a Donald Trump supporter tried to run over him and his mother in a parking lot.

Sergio S. Gonzalez, a Democratic candidate for county commissioner in southern New Mexico, told The Associated Press a woman attempted to strike him outside the Democratic Party headquarters in Roswell, New Mexico last week after the woman yelled obscenities about Democrats.

The 39-year-old retired Marine told police the driver shouted Trump’s name before trying to hit him and his 72-year-old mother. Gonzalez says he, his mother and two others were just standing in the parking lot when the woman came over to yell obscenities.

No arrests have been made.

Republican Party of Chaves County chairman Jason Perry told the Roswell Daily Record the woman, who has not been identified, likely isn’t among the local GOP leadership.

Naaah. She’s just leading by example.
