Yvette Herrell is a Republican member of the New Mexico House of Representatives. Herrell represents District 51. She was elected in 2010 and has served since assuming office in 2011.

Herrell defeated incumbent representative Gloria Vaughn in the June 1, 2010 primary, winning 846 votes to Vaughan's 714.[1] Vaughn was seeking her ninth term.[2]

The morning after the primary, the outcome was not immediately clear, though Herrell appeared even then to have effected an upset over Vaughn, a result considered by race watchers to be a surprise.[3]

Herrell currently works in real estate, but is experienced in state politics as well. She has worked as a legislative assistant to Representatives Dianne Hamilton and Nora Espinoza.[4]

Background

Herrell has owned several businesses, including Alamo Earthwork and Paving and Holiday Kennels. She is now self-employed, puchasing real estate contracts and investment property. Prior to deciding to run for office, she worked as a legislative assistant for two Republican members of New Mexico's House, Dianne M. Hamilton and Nora Espinoza.

In announcing her entry into the race on March 23, 2010, Herrell said, "Many recognize the problems we are facing in New Mexico. I wholeheartedly believe that with the upcoming elections, we have the opportunity to correct some of these issues and rebuild a state government that residents can once again believe in."[5]

Ahead of the primaries, she spoke of her positions on key issues, saying she strongly favors legally restricting marriage to heterosexual couples, feels the progressive mood of the voters in 2008 is dangerous for the nation, and intends to focus her campaign on minimizing government involvement in the family and in businesses.
