Something a bit historic is happening in the early going in the Dem race for Congress.
Deb Haaland has received the endorsement of Jemez Pueblo and Santo Domingo Pueblo for her campaign to be the next Congresswoman for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District.
The amount of grassroots support for this quarter shows an extraordinary amount of momentum, growth, and excitement nationally as well as in New Mexico.
A record number of women are running for office. Among them is Deb Haaland who is running for the U.S. House in New Mexico’s First District. In UniteWomen.org’s series entitled #WhyImRunning, Deb tells us about her background and why she decided to run for office.
“Regardless of where we live, Native Americans are a big part of our community,” Haaland said. “I definitely will be representing Indian Country, whether it’s here or wherever.”
