Santa Fe, NM — Following the Associated Press declaring that Teresa Leger Fernandez is the Democratic nominee in New Mexico’s Third Congressional District, Leger Fernandez released the following statement:
“This is a win for communities, families and workers all across our district, and I am grateful for the trust that voters have placed in our campaign’s vision for Northern New Mexico. Even in a time when we must continue to stay physically distant and so much tries to divide us, this campaign has always been about interconnectedness and coming together,” said Teresa Leger Fernandez. “We ran a positive campaign that brought our communities together and celebrated the diversity that makes us New Mexicans, and I’m proud to have won tonight with a broad, diverse coalition of support from across the district.
Leger Fernandez continued, “Together, we will continue to build our campaign community and work to earn every vote as we look towards November, because I am committed to being a uniting voice for us all. It’s time to take bold and courageous action to protect what we love — our health care, our democracy, and this beautiful place we call home. Ahora es Cuando!”
A daughter of Northern New Mexico who was born and raised in Las Vegas, NM, Teresa has spent her career advocating for communities throughout the district. Now she will take her experience grounded in community forward to November as the Democratic nominee for New Mexico’s Third Congressional District.
