Deb Haaland's Primary Win Puts Her Even Closer To Becoming The First Native American Congresswoman

A New Mexico Democrat and ICE abolitionist is well on her way to making history as the country's first Native American congresswoman. Deb Haaland won the primary for her state's 1st Congressional District on Tuesday, and ABC News reported that she is likely to win a seat in the House of Representatives in November.

According to her campaign website, Haaland is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna — one of 23 federally recognized Native American tribes in New Mexico — and she once served as her state's Democratic state party leader. Following her victory in Tuesday's primaries, Haaland told voters that "tonight, New Mexico made history."
