Know the Candidates, Know the Challenges

When it comes to November, Dems across the country are looking ahead and seeing blue. Here in New Mexico, we have a confident start – thanks to strong Dem incumbents in our state legislature, judiciary and many other important offices. But that doesn’t mean we can sit back. From Washington D.C. to our local county courtrooms, Democratic candidates need your vote – and your help getting out the vote – to hold on to our seats of office and overturn even more.

Dems Up and Down the Ballot

Here’s your link to all the candidates who are counting on our support in their bids for federal, state, and local offices in November.

Priority Races: Seats to Flip, Seats to Hold
