Deb Haaland, a member of the Pueblo of Laguna tribe, won her party's primary in the first congressional district Tuesday night. Haaland will face Republican Janice Arnold-Jones in November for the seat considered solidly Democratic.
"Thank you to the tens of thousands of volunteers, grass-roots donors and supporters who won this election," Haaland said after results revealed she had outpolled former U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez and social justice activist Antoinette Sedillo Lopez. "Our win is a victory for working people, a victory for women and a victory for everyone who has been sidelined by the billionaire class."
Haaland also took a shot at President Trump, saying he and "the billionaire class should consider this victory a warning shot. The blue wave is coming."
