Democrat Deb Haaland's win in New Mexico is historic


November 7, 2018

Deb Haaland made history on Tuesday by becoming one of the first Native American woman elected to Congress.

Haaland, a member of the Pueblo of Laguna and the former chair of the New Mexico state Democratic Party, won New Mexico’s blue-leaning First Congressional District on Tuesday night. She joins Kansas Democrat Sharice Davids; they are the first two Native American women going to Congress. The two women will join the ranks of just two more Native American Congress members: Republican Reps. Markwayne Mullin and Tom Cole, both of Oklahoma.
