The Return of Allen Weh

Former state Republican Party Chairman Allen Weh, who in June lost to Susana Martinez in a bitter gubernatorial primary fight is launching a new political policy organization and a new Website.

The organization is called "For Country," which Weh says is "to build awareness of the nation’s challenges and support for the principles the United States was founded on: limited government, free enterprise and a strong national defense.

According to the colonel:
“In the 21st century, our country faces more challenges as a nation than it has since its inception. International Islamic terrorists seek to destroy our country. There is a virtual combat zone in Mexico that is beginning to spill over into the United States. And our economy remains frail and vulnerable because of policies that have weakened our free enterprise system. If we want a thriving, prosperous nation, we need to address these issues and resolve them quickly. For Country will help facilitate these efforts.”

The organization — established under the provisions of IRS 527 — will also lend support to elected officials and candidates who share a similar vision for New Mexico and the United States of America, Weh said.

The press release didn't say whether Martinez would be one of those candidates For Country helps. Weh hasn't formally endorsed his primary rival.
