New Mexico’s Second Congressional District is comprised of the southern half of the state and includes the cities of Las Cruces, Hobbs, Roswell and part of Albuquerque. This large district is ranked sixth in size and spans from Texas to Mexico. The Second District boasts a picturesque landscape of barren desert and rugged mountains. Representing this historically Republican-leaning district is vulnerable Freshman Democrat Harry Teague who has foolishly supported his party’s failed trillion-dollar stimulus and a national energy tax that could cost New Mexico up to 12,709 jobs and could cost him his seat this November. Teague’s unbridled loyalty to his party leader Nancy Pelosi has put him directly at odds with his conservative constituents and in a position to lose to Republican candidate and former Congressman Steve Pearce.
The voters in New Mexico’s Second District have a clear choice as they decide between former Congressman Pearce, who held the seat from 2003 to 2009 (when he stepped down to run for the US Senate) and Teague, who has served as a loyal rubber stamp to the Democrats’ radical agenda, voting with Nancy Pelosi 90 percent of the time. Steve Pearce diligently represented the good people of New Mexico’s 2nd district and, with recent polling has Pearce up by 4 percent over Harry Teague, will do so again.
