NM-02 | LCV Victory Fund


In New Mexico’s 2nd congressional district, LCV Action Fund-endorsed Gabe Vasquez is running against incumbent Rep. Yvette Herrell. Vasquez is a strong climate justice advocate who has dedicated his career to protecting the environment. In Congress, he will continue to champion conservation policies that safeguard New Mexico’s natural resources. Dirty Dozen member Rep. Herrell, on the other hand, is one of the top 10 recipients of oil and gas contributions in the House, having already raked in more than $173,000 from the oil and gas industry this cycle. Earlier this year she voted against legislation to crack down on price gouging by the oil and gas industry.
