“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.

“Weekly Alibi believes that Deb Haaland is up to the challenge. 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.”
