ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Democratic Party of New Mexico hosted their pre-primary convention Saturday.
Thousands of delegates weighed in to select the candidates that will appear on the primary ballot.
Congresswomen Xochitl Torres Small (D-District 2) and Deb Haaland (D-District 1) are both seeking reelection and running without opposition in the Democratic Primary. Senate hopeful Rep. Ben Ray Lujan is also running unopposed.
“You know, it’s always incredible to see how contagious this energy is. What I’m really proud about is everyone here who are the most aggressive organizers in the state of New Mexico, they’re good at what they do — they feel the urgency at what’s at stake and they know we all have to come together to defeat Donald Trump in 2020,” Rep. Lujan said.
The most contested race for Democrats right now is New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District, which Rep. Lujan currently represents.
Lujan announced last year he was giving up his House seat to replace Sen. Tom Udall.
