WASHINGTON  Congressional Leadership Fund released the following statement on the results of the primary for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District:

“Yvette Herrell campaigned hard, never gave up and proved she’s exactly the fighter we need to take this seat back from Nancy Pelosi and her liberal lapdog, Xochitl Torres Small,” said CLF President Dan Conston. “Congresswoman Torres Small went to Washington and forgot she’s supposed to represent New Mexicans, not play second fiddle to Washington Democrats in their extreme attempts to outlaw New Mexico’s oil and gas industries or their failed attempts to remove President Trump from office. Xochitl Torres Small’s record is out-of-line with New Mexico voters, and I have no doubt Yvette Herrell will send her packing in November.”

As part of its initial wave of advertising reservations, Congressional Leadership Fund booked $1.1 million across New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District targeting Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small for defeat in November. Click here to read more.
