NEW MEXICO’S 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT (open)

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Current polling: Xochitl Torres Small (D) 45, Yvette Herrell (R) 44 (NYT/Siena, 10/23)

Why this race matters: All eyes have been on this high profile race as Democrat Xochitl Torres Small battles it out with Republican Yvette Herrell to represent New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District. The margin in this race is razor thin, with the most recent New York Times poll showing Torres Small at 46% over Herrell’s 45%. This race will come down to the wire, but Torres Small’s significant cash advantage should give her a boost in this GOP-leaning district that has been held by the Republicans since 2011.
