Recently, Rio Grande Foundation president Paul Gessing sat down with Fred Martino of KRWG-TV in Las Cruces. Unlike most television appearances, Gessing was not being called upon to debate a liberal on issues of limited government in New Mexico. Rather, in this interview, Gessing and Connor Gordon of Young Americans For Liberty at New Mexico State University discussed the battle for liberty in New Mexico.
Connor is a smart young guy and defies his generation’s unfortunate embrace of left-wing liberal policies. He is ahead of where Gessing was when he was a college student. Anyway, the interview provides an opportunity for both to go into their understanding of the state of liberty in New Mexico and what needs to be done to improve it.
