The New Mexico House of Representatives was a battleground chamber that Ballotpedia identified as having the opportunity to switch partisan control in 2014. The New Mexico House had a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of four seats, which amounted to 5.7 percent of the chamber. District 7 in the House was identified by Ballotpedia, the Sante Fe New Mexican and the New Mexico Telegram as a battleground district that would be key in determining control of the New Mexico House of Representatives. Incumbent Kelly K. Fajardo (R) was targeted by Democrats because she skipped a vote last legislative session to raise the state's minimum-wage. In the general election, Fajardo defeated Teresa K.E. Smith De Cherif (D). Smith De Cherif defeated Andrew Barreras in the Democratic primary. Fajardo narrowly defeated Barreras in 2012.
