New Mexico is the primary state to elect all ladies of colour to its home delegation

Democratic MP Deb Haaland won re-election on Tuesday.

New Mexico will be the first state in the country to be fully represented in the House of Representatives by women in color in January.

The state is sending MP Deb Haaland back to the house after she was elected to Congress as one of the first Native American women in 2018.

Haaland is accompanied by a Democrat Teresa Leger Fernandez, who triumphed in the state’s 3rd Congressional District. Fernandez won an open seat left by Democratic MP Ben Ray Luján, who, according to the AP, is the planned winner of the open seat of the state’s U.S. Senate.

Republican Yvette Herrell, a member of the Cherokee Nation, has deposed Democratic MP Xochitl Torres Small in the 2nd District.
