Campaign themes

Riedel's campaign website listed the following themes for the 2014 election:

Restoring Integrity
Corruption has become a black eye on our state during that past several years. We need a strong Attorney General who will thoroughly investigate and prosecute any officials who feel that they can operate outside the law. I successfully prosecuted the Dona Ana County Clerk for violations of the election laws.

As Attorney General, I will take the same swift action against anyone who violates our laws, especially those in positions of trust who misuse their office.

Tackling Crime
With more than 25 years of experience as a prosecutor, I know what it takes to combat crime. I have personally handled hundreds of criminal cases and assisted in thousands. New Mexico deserves to have an experienced prosecutor in that office because the Attorney General appears in all criminal appeals and it takes trial courtroom experience like mine to truly understand these cases and ensure that legal technicalities don't put dangerous criminals back in our communities.

Strengthening Jobs Climate
New Mexico employers deserve to have a fair and predictable Attorney General who will allow them to flourish within the scope of the law. The red tape and regulations imposed by Washington often cripple the ability of small businesses to create jobs and grow. We must continue to make new business welcome so our economy can flourish. I promise to evaluate the myriad regulations to determine whether they are in the best interest of New Mexico, or must be challenged.

Protecting Consumers
As Attorney General, I will ensure that the public is always informed about consumer issues and will ensure that all consumers are treated fairly. All reports of suspicious business activity will be fully and fairly investigated.

Defending Constitutional Rights
I have sworn to defend our constitution as a prosecutor and as a judge. As Attorney General, I will be in a strong position to ensure that our personal liberties and freedoms are not eroded. [3]
