New Mexico results for every midterm race

New Mexico’s retiring Republican Gov. Susana Martinez is putting a number of seats in play in the state this year with her exit: both the governor’s mansion and two congressional seats of the House members running to replace her.

In a state that’s increasingly trending Democratic but has had a Republican governor for the past two terms, Democrats are hoping a blue wave can sweep the governor’s mansion as well as the only Republican-held House district in the state.

The most contentious races in New Mexico are the campaign for governor, followed by the Second Congressional District. Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, the chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, is challenging Republican Rep. Steve Pearce for the governor’s seat.

Former state Democratic Party Chair Deb Haaland is running against former state Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones in the First Congressional District. If she wins, Haaland could be the first Native American woman elected to Congress. And Democrats are hoping to flip Pearce’s old district, where Democrat Xochitl Torres Small is running against Republican Yvette Herrell.

New Mexico’s state legislature favors Democrats, and though the entire 70-seat state House of Representatives is on the ballot today, the state Senate is not. Daily Kos expects the House to remain in Democrats’ hands.

President Trump is unpopular in New Mexico, with Morning Consult finding a 55 percent disapproval rating.
