DPNM: The Second Congressional District Is A Priority

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Adds NM CD-2 to Target List

New Mexico – Monday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee added New Mexico’s Second Congressional District (CD-2) to their list of target districts. The Democratic Party of New Mexico reinforced this move calling the state’s second congressional district a “priority.”

“Democrats are well positioned to expand our leadership in 2018, and our second congressional district is a priority,” said DPNM Chair Richard Ellenberg. “With chaos coming from the presidential administration and Republican leadership in the House pushing policies that harm the health and wellbeing of New Mexico families, it’s imperative that a Democrat get elected to that seat. We’ll be working every day to engage with voters in the area and mobilize grassroots energy in our communities.”

New Mexico CD-2 is currently held by extreme Republican Congressman Steve Pearce, whose most recent egregious vote in favor of Trumpcare would throw residents in his district off their health care plans.
