“We need new, strong voices in Congress to fight for the things that New Mexicans need and deserve. I am that voice, and I have lived New Mexican values. During tonight’s debate, my opponents proved that their priorities do not reflect the values of New Mexicans. I am prepared to to work toward an economy that works for everyone, not just the well-connected. I will work to make New Mexico a leader in clean energy, and I am prepared to fight for New Mexicans’ and all Americans’ right to healthcare. I would appreciate having your vote on November 6th.”
Deb Haaland, the Democratic nominee for Congress in New Mexico’s 1st district, reported raising over $630,000 in the third FEC quarter of 2018.

After resolutely sustaining her campaign through a brutal primary season against seasoned and well-equipped challengers, Ms. Haaland has demonstrated leadership qualities that will add to the formidable book of changes she takes with her to Washington in 2019.”
From the Alibi: “In concordance with our traditional, progressive Weekly Alibi value set, whereby we support grassroots efforts to make progressive and lasting advancements to our national governance model, we hereby support Deb Haaland for the position of US Representative for District One in the State of New Mexico. Thank you very much.”
