WASHINGTON — The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is spotlighting 13 incredible Democratic candidates for the New Mexico House. These candidates represent the vast, vibrant diversity of New Mexico. This group of candidates brings the kind of policy-making expertise and drive for change that makes New Mexico the standard for Democratic progress nationwide. In 2022, holding the New Mexico House is a top priority for the DLCC. 

“We are so excited to highlight these candidates as they fight to continue the progress Democrats have made in the Roundhouse over the last year,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “While New Mexico Republicans catered to the most extreme flank of their party, Democrats passed legislation that cut costs and improved the lives of all New Mexicans – like creating a paid sick leave program, increasing teacher pay, and making college tuition-free for residents. These returning and future leaders will help fuel the progress Democrats are building in New Mexico and continue to act as a standard-bearer for state Democrats all across the country.”

The following Spotlight candidates have outstanding records of service to their communities and will be valuable assets to the New Mexico legislature:
