The losses in Texas, Florida, and Georgia weigh heavy on our hearts as we celebrate astonishing victories in our NM state and federal races. Xochi’s still in the running as of 7:30 this morning!!

Congratulations to all the hardworking Democratic House candidates who won last night. And to those who came so close, thank you for your efforts in trying to make NM a better place to live and raise a family. It was a great night for women and progressives in NM. Let’s be a presence in Santa Fe to push for bold progressive legislation that effectively tackles the challenges we face in NM and the rest of the country.
