Tuesday’s elections in New Mexico brought a well-earned primary win for Deb Haaland, an organizer and former Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair running for the U.S. House in NM-01. When she wins in November, she’ll be the first Native American woman sent to Congress in our nation’s history.
Haaland joined other Democrats including Michelle Lujan Grisham – the outgoing CD-1 U.S. Rep and Democratic Party’s gubernatorial nominee – at the traditional DPNM Unity Breakfast on Wednesday morning, held at Barelas Coffee House in southeast Albuquerque.
