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 36 in the House was identified by Ballotpedia, the Albuquerque Journal, New Mexico Telegram and the Republican State Leadership Committee as a battleground district that would be key in determining control of the New Mexico House of Representatives. The Future Majority Project, part of the Republican State Leadership Committee, announced in August, that District 36 was apart of the projects races to watch. Democrats hoped to hang on to District 36, where first-term lawmaker Phillip M. Archuleta (D), missed all of 2014's session due to health reasons. Andrew Nunez (R), a former House member, defeated Archuleta in the 2014 general election.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
