Members of the audience look on as President Donald Trump delivers remarks. Trump's campaign sees an opening in the state with Latinos, who it believes will swing his way despite tough immigration policies criticized by Democrats, including a crackdown on migrants from Central America and a push to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. Trump told the rally in Rio Rancho that his support was rising among Hispanics. "They don't want criminals coming across the border. They don't want people taking their jobs. They want to have that security and they want the wall," he said.

President Donald Trump hosts a Keep America Great rally in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. New Mexico is rich in oil and natural gas, and Trump touted his support for the fossil fuel industry while assailing Democrats for their policies of promoting renewable energy production. "Every major Democrat running for president - they want to abolish all production of oil and natural gas. In other words the Democrats want to completely annihilate New Mexico's economy," the Republican president said.

Members of the audience react as President Donald Trump delivers remarks. The Trump campaign says it wants New Mexico's five electoral votes to augment the 306 electoral votes the president received in his first election, not create a separate path for victory. A candidate must get 270 electoral votes nationally to win.

Members of the audience watch from an outdoor overflow area at the Santa Ana Star Center. Democrats, who did well in New Mexico during the 2018 midterm elections, are skeptical.  Last cycle, Democrats crushed Republicans in New Mexico because voters are fed up with President Trump s toxic healthcare agenda and broken promises," said David Bergstein, a communications director for the Democratic National Committee focused on battleground states. "We take nothing for granted, but this GOP strategy looks like they're concerned about a realistic pathway to 270 electoral votes," he added.
