|DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Congresswoman-elect Melanie Stansbury on her win tonight. Melanie campaigned on the issues that matter most to New Mexico’s working families: addressing food and housing insecurity, fighting to protect and expand access to health care, building and diversifying our economy, and tackling global climate change. Melanie has been a champion for New Mexicans during her tenure in the state legislature, and I’m confident she’ll demonstrate that same drive representing New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District in Washington.
“This victory should serve as a cautionary tale to Republicans across the country. Standing in the way of delivering for the American people is not what voters are looking for. New Mexicans proved that tonight. Meanwhile, President Biden and Democrats are offering a bold agenda to build our country back better, delivering on their promises, and getting our country back on track — it’s going to be an easy choice for the American people come these midterm elections.”
