From the Campaign of U.S. Rep. Teresa Leger Fernández:
SANTA FE — U.S. Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez released a statement Tuesday evening on New Mexico’s primary election results and officially becoming the Democratic nominee in New Mexico’s Third Congressional District.
“Muchísimas gracias, New Mexico!” Rep. Leger Fernandez said. “I’ve taken the concerns and voices of New Mexicans to Congress and delivered for our state: from lowering health care costs, to delivering clean water, broadband, and infrastructure investments, to funding $74 million in local projects that will create jobs in communities across every corner of the district. There is so much more to do — especially ensuring New Mexicans impacted by the wildfires receive the financial compensation they deserve and need to rebuild, and defeating the VA’s recommendations to close our rural veterans’ health centers.”
Rep. Leger Fernandez added, “I will always listen to voters across my district, work hard to win their support in November, and fight for New Mexicans in Congress.”
“Born and raised in Las Vegas, N.M., Leger Fernandez spent her career working on behalf of New Mexico’s communities, helping build critical infrastructure and small businesses, promoting tribal sovereignty, and advancing voting rights. A daughter of rural New Mexico, in Congress she champions New Mexico’s children and families, education, small businesses, and tribal and rural communities – so that all New Mexicans can thrive.” –Rep.
