Ben Ray Lujan and Mark Ronchetti face off for US Senate in New Mexico

Grace Panetta 6 hours ago

Democratic Rep. Ben Ray LujŠn is facing off against Republican Mark Ronchetti for US Senate in New Mexico.

The candidates:
LujŠn has represented New Mexico's 3rd Congressional District, which includes the Northern part of the state and the state's capital of Santa Fe, for over a decade since 2009. He previously served on New Mexico's Public Regulation Commission.

In the House, LujŠn has taken on leadership positions as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, House' Democrats campaign arm, from 2015 to 2019, and now as the House Assistant Democratic Leader, making him currently the highest-ranking Hispanic member of the House.

LujŠn announced his candidacy for US Senate in 2019 shortly after current Sen. Mark Udall announced his retirement, and quickly cleared the field to secure the Democratic nomination.

His campaign platform emphasizes investing in New Mexico families and improving opportunities and outcomes for children, strengthening New Mexico's economy, especially at New Mexico's bases and National Labs, and protecting New Mexico's natural resources and public lands.

Ronchetti, the Republican candidate, is a former TV news reporter and meteorologist in Albuquerque. His campaign platform emphasizes lowering taxes and bringing more economic development to New Mexico, protecting 2nd Amendment rights, and bolstering security along the US' southern border.
