NM Senate: Mark Ronchetti (R)
Mark Ronchetti lives in Albuquerque, where he and his wife, Krysty, are raising two daughters.
One of five children himself, Ronchetti was raised by two loving parents. His father is a first-generation American who became an electrical engineer, and his grandfather came to the United States from Italy in the 1920’s unable to read or write. Throughout Ronchetti’s childhood, his family impressed upon him that the promise of the American Dream is what makes the United States a truly great and unique country.
Ronchetti graduated from Washington State University in 1996 and, after a stint working at a television station in Colorado, he moved to New Mexico in 1998 to work for a local station in Albuquerque. He became a certified meteorologist and went on to become the chief meteorologist for Albuquerque’s CBS-affiliated news station.
Ronchetti is running for the U.S. Senate to be New Mexico’s voice in the nation’s capital, where he will work to keep America strong and well-protected, preserve and grow New Mexico’s role in providing for national defense, secure our southern border, and bring much-needed federal help in the daily fight against crime.
Ronchetti and his family enjoy spending time in the beautiful New Mexico outdoors. They like to hike, bike, camp, and ski, and their two huskies, Maverick and Scout, are never far behind.
