2018 Campaign Newsletter
The momentum for the 2018 elections is building! Across the country, we are seeing millions of Democrats participate in primaries and electing diverse, qualified candidates ready to help take back Congress, governor’s seats, and state houses!
Right here in New Mexico, we can take back the governor's seat and Congress and restore checks and balances to our nation. I've seen the momentum on the ground. From roundtable conversations to meetings with activists and even visiting friends at local events, one thing is clear: New Mexico is ready. I hope you’ll join me on my 4-day Grassroots Roadtrip as I travel from Gallup to Raton and visit with communities in between.

Right here in New Mexico, we have wonderful new leaders. Congratulations to Marg Elliston, newly-elected Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico and Estelle Berger, newly-elected Vice Chair of the Democratic Party of Santa Fe!
But to win this year, we need more than great leadership. We need everyone across Northern New Mexico to roll up their sleeves. We need YOU! Please email grassrootsatbenrlujan.com if you can help us make calls, knock doors, enter data, email voters, and host house parties. Democracy only works if we all participate, and we can always find the right volunteer opportunity that fits you!
Humbled by your support
Thanks to my wonderful volunteers and the great groups that have endorsed my campaign! I’m humbled to have the support of so many wonderful organizations, most recently Equality NM and the Machinists! It’s important to me to represent our New Mexico families, day in and day out as we continue the fight against the radical GOP agenda and your support is important.
Thank you for your commitment to our Democracy. We cannot forget what’s at stake this November. Just last week, Republicans proposed a Farm Bill that fails our rural farmers and slashes $23 billion from SNAP programs that feed millions of children. And while Republican donors are spending millions to rollback Frank Dodd, undo Obama era protections, and enact tariffs that harm our local businesses, we can stop them with our powerful grassroots activists, volunteers, and supporters. Because when we work together, we win together!
Let’s get to work!
