Silver City, NM– Former Congressman Ed Foreman (R) from Silver City endorsed C. Earl Greer today in the race for New Mexico’s second district Congressional seat.
"Earl Greer has the grit, guts, and gumption to do the kind of results–oriented job that New Mexicans have grown to expect from their Washington representatives in the likes of Joe Skeen, Steve Pearce, and Senator Pete Domenici," said former Congressman Foreman. He called Greer an "experienced, honest, hard–working, dependable leader" who will do New Mexico and America "a great service."
"I am flattered that Rep. Foreman endorses my candidacy for the US House of Representatives," said Greer by telephone from the campaign trail. "His previous experience in the US House of Representatives has given him a unique viewpoint in this election, and he feels that I am the best qualified of all the candidates in this election."
Greer is a fifth generation New Mexican with a background in ranching and is the only candidate fluent in Spanish with Hispanic roots.
