Welcome to Blue CD2
HOW IT STARTED
In 2020 Republicans waged an aggressive campaign to elect Yvette Herrell, an unabashed Trumper and right-wing zealot, to represent New Mexico’s Second Congressional District (CD2). Since taking office, Herrell has voted against just about everything—including the American Rescue Plan. Back in CD2, her No votes raised the question, “What is Yvette Herrell doing for you?” The answer: Nada, nothing, zero. That’s why a group of kindred volunteers formed BlueCD2 NM and began working together to expose Herrell’s one-sided agenda and defeat her in 2022.
HOW IT’S GOING
Our experienced leaders and enthusiastic volunteers have worked hard to equip our members with the tools needed for the fight ahead. Our membership is district-wide and represents like-minded organizations and individuals. We've set up committees and have an on-line social media presence. We’ve established a donation site and have already begun funding two projects in the district. We welcome other organizations and volunteers to join us for the important work ahead.
But there's more, much more. Learn about Herrell's dismal voting record and her eyebrow-raising antics here.
We're a group of like-minded folks who don't believe Yvette Herrell is focused on New Mexico's Congressional District 2, but rather on whatever the extreme right of the Republican Party feels is important. CD2 deserves a congressional representative who is focused on CD2's actual needs.
If you agree, please sign up here and tell us a bit about yourself. We're excited to have you join us!

How to Run for Office
Thinking about running for office? Great! We need good candidates for the down ballot races in CD2. Here's a link to get you started.
CD2 is one of the largest congressional districts in the country, and includes most of the southern half of New Mexico. Its unique characteristics include the oil patch, ranchers, farmers, indigenous people and much, much more. It deserves a far better representative in Congress than we have currently.
Please be sure to vote in the upcoming elections. It's extremely important both here in New Mexico and nationally to keep our Democratic majority.

A voter who requested and received an absentee ballot is allowed to deliver the official mailing envelope containing the voter's absentee ballot on Election Day to any polling location in the county in which the voter is registered if the voter presents the official mailing envelope to the presiding judge before the polls close on Election Day.
