Context

A Ballotpedia analysis of partisan balance shows that Democrats have controlled the New Mexico House of Representatives since 1952.[1]

Races to Watch

For Republicans to gain control of the House, they will first need all of their incumbents to win, and pick up another three, in order to become the majority. One of the most competitive races will be in District 37 between second-term Republican Terry McMillan and Democrat Joanne J. Ferrary. Ferrary lost to McMillan two years ago by only eight votes.[2]

Incumbent Kelly K. Fajardo (R) of District 7 was unopposed in the Republican primary, but is expected to face tough competition in the general election. Fajardo is being targeted by Democrats because she skipped the minimum-wage vote. In the general election, she will face Teresa K.E. Smith De Cherif (D). Smith De Cherif defeated Andrew Barreras in the Democratic primary. Fajardo narrowly defeated Barreras in 2012.[3][4]

Republicans will be looking to keep District 23, where first-term incumbent Paul Pacheco (R) will face Catherine Begaye (D) in the general election. In the last election, Pacheco beat a Democratic newcomer by only 78 votes. Republicans will also try to pick up District 15, District 24 and District 43, which are currently occupied by first-term Democrats. In District 15, incumbent Emily A. Kane (D) will face Sarah Maestas Barnes (R) in the general election. In 2012, Kane won the general election by a margin of victory of only 2 percent. In District 24, incumbent Elizabeth L. Thomson (D) will have 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. The Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC) announced in July that District 15 and 24 are apart of the organizations "14 in ‘14 Races to Watch." The organization is expected to spend a large amount of money to influence the elections in both districts.[4][5]

The Future Majority Project, part of the Republican State Leadership Committee, announced in August, that District 36 is apart of the projects races to watch. Democrats hope to hang on to District 36, where first-term lawmaker Phillip M. Archuleta (D), missed all of this year's session due to health reasons. Archuleta will face Andrew Nunez (R), a former House member, who he defeated two years ago in the general election.[6]

In a traditionally Republican district, District 43 is currently represented by first-term Democrat Stephanie Garcia Richard. Republicans will attempt to regain the seat when Garcia Richard faces Los Alamos County Council Chair Geoff Rodgers (R) in the general election.[2][4]

Democrats are eager to regain District 50, where incumbent Vickie Perea (R) was appointed to the seat in November 2013 after the death of Stephen Easley (D). Perea will face Matthew McQueen (D) in the general election. In District 53, Democrats are hoping to hang onto the seat where incumbent Nate Cote announced that he would not be seeking re-election. Former house member Rick Little (R), who Cote defeated in 2012, will face Mariaelena Johnson (D) in the general election.[2][4]
