“Maggie’sList is thrilled to endorse Yvette Herrell. Yvette knows first-hand the representation New Mexico’s 2nd district needs in Washington,” states Maggie’sList National Chair and former elected Florida Secretary of State, Sandra Mortham. “Yvette understands that our country needs more fiscal conservatism, personal responsibility, a strong national security and more personal responsibility.”


An entrepreneur who has owned and operated several successful small businesses, Yvette knows that big government is not the answer.She stood against overbearing regulations and government overreach in Santa Fe, which is why Yvette was awarded as a Hero of the Year by the NewMexico Business Coalition in 2015 and was ranked #1 on the Rio GrandeFoundation's Freedom Index in 2018. 


“I want to thank Maggie’s List for standing with our campaign to flip New Mexico’s Second Congressional District.With their support, we will take back this seat and begin to restore our values of limited government and fiscal conservatism to Congress,” states Herrell, candidate endorsed by Maggie’s List.
