"Claudia has a deep understanding of her district. She knows what her neighbors need to thrive, because she knows what it's like to live in urban and rural areas like the ones that make up Senate District 19. Claudia will fight for a stronger, more stable economy — one with better educational success, access to quality healthcare, high-speed broadband, and cellular coverage for New Mexicans everywhere. As a 29-year Navy vet, she will also ensure our veterans are taken care of and receive the benefits and care they deserve. That's why I am proud to endorse Claudia for New Mexico Senate District 19."
