Democrats to rally at Taos Plaza Aug. 3


The Taos County Democratic Party is rallying its base, and some of the party’s heavy-hitters, for an event on the Taos Plaza next week. Sen. Tom Udall is expected to attend and speak at the event.

Organizers expect a lineup that also includes U.S. Congressman Ben Ray Lujan, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, New Mexico Treasurer Tim Eichenberg, candidate for New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and New Mexico Democratic Party Chair Debra Haaland.

Also expected to attend are three Taos delegates who are returning from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Those delegates are Seamus Berkeley, André Gonzales and Nicole Renee Peters.

Expected to perform are the El Comanche de la Serna Indian Dancers.

There will be free food and drinks for the fist 250 attendees, organizers said.

The “United For Victory” rally will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Organizers suggest attendees bring chairs for comfort.
