State Legislative Election Results

New Mexico House of Representatives
BattlegroundRace.jpg

The Republican Party win in the New Mexico House of Representatives will provide support to Republican Governor Susana Martinez.

The Democratic Party held the House by a four-seat margin, a smaller margin than the one the party held in the Senate. The Senate did not have elections in 2014, so the focus was on the lower house and the governorship.

Nine seats up for election were competitive in 2012, with margins of victory between 0 and 5 percent.

While the election was an opportunity for the Republicans, there were some obstacles. Republicans needed to pick up three additional seats to gain control of the House. History was against the Republicans; the Democrats held the House going back to 1952.

The New Mexico House of Representatives was one of 20 state legislative chambers noted by Ballotpedia staff as being a 2014 battleground chamber. The House had a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republicans of four seats, which amounted to 5.7 percent of the chamber. In 2012, a total of 15 districts were competitive or mildly competitive. There were nine districts where the margin of victory was 5 percent or less in the 2012 elections. Another six districts had a margin of victory between 5 and 10 percent.

Elections for the office of New Mexico House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on June 3, 2014, and a general election took place on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was February 4, 2014.

Following the general election, the Republican Party wrested control of the New Mexico House of Representatives from the Democratic Party. Prior to the general election, the chamber's composition was 37-33, with the Democrats holding the majority. Following the general election, that composition was mirrored, with the Republicans holding 37 seats (up from 33) and the Democrats holding 33 seats (down from 37).


Incumbents retiring

A total of eleven incumbents did not run for re-election in 2014. Those incumbents were:

Context

A Ballotpedia analysis of partisan balance showed that Democrats had controlled the New Mexico House of Representatives since 1952.[1] In 38 (54.2%) of the 70 districts up for election in 2014, there was only one major party candidate running for election. A total of 23 Democrats and 15 Republicans were guaranteed election barring unforeseen circumstances. Two major party candidates faced off in the general election in 32 (46%) of the 70 districts up for election. Republicans needed all of their incumbents to win, and pick up another three, in order to become the majority.

Bold=Incumbent

There were eleven open seats, vacated by retiring incumbents, in the November election. Six Democrats and five Republican representatives did not run for re-election.

The Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC) announced in July that District 15 and 24 were a part of the organizations "14 in ‘14 Races to Watch." The organization was expected to spend a large amount of money to influence the elections in both districts.[2] The Future Majority Project, part of the Republican State Leadership Committee, announced in August, that District 36 was one of the project's races to watch.[3]

  • District 15: Incumbent Emily A. Kane (D) was defeated by Sarah Maestas Barnes (R) in the general election. In 2012, Kane won the general election by a margin of victory of only 2 percent.[5] This district is a part of the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee's "14 in ‘14 Races to Watch."[2]
  • District 23: Republicans looked to keep District 23, where first-term incumbent Paul Pacheco (R) defeated Catherine Begaye (D) in the general election. In the last election, Pacheco beat a Democratic newcomer by only 78 votes.[5]
  • District 24: Incumbent Elizabeth L. Thomson (D) was defeated in a rematch against former house member Conrad James (R) in the general election. Thomson defeated James in the 2012 election by less than 300 votes.[5] This district was a part of the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee's "14 in ‘14 Races to Watch."[2]
  • District 36: Democrats hoped to hang on to District 36, where first-term lawmaker Phillip M. Archuleta (D) missed all of 2014's legislative session due to health reasons. Archuleta was defeated by Andrew Nunez (R), a former House member, who he defeated two years prior in the general election. This district was a part of the Republican State Leadership Committee's Future Majority Project as one of the project's races to watch.[3]
