Debra Haaland is the newly elected State Democratic Chair of New Mexico, and one of the state’s leading political activists with a long and storied history of working for the interests of the people of New Mexico regardless of race, color, creed or economic strata.
As the Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor during the 2014 general election she visited every corner of the state and demonstrated her care for and understanding of New Mexico’s people and issues.
Deb has worked to increase voter turnout in underrepresented communities for more than a decade. As the Native American Vote Director for President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign she, again, traveled across the state, where she was instrumental in generating nearly a 60% voter turnout in Native American precincts with 89% of the votes cast going for the President.
