ELECTION NIGHT WATCH PARTIES: WHAT THEY WERE SAYING

DEMOCRATS

Rep. Joanne Ferrary, D-Doña Ana, on her victory in District 37
“It feels wonderful … We have a great opportunity with Michelle Lujan Grisham as our new governor.”

Rep.-elect Micaela Lara Cadena, District 33
“I grew up in District 33. I’m proud to be raising my daughters in the district that raised me. Today is the beginning. The real work continues.”

Shannon Reynolds, who defeated Ben Rawson for County Commission District 3
“The turnout to support me was humbling. To win this kind of race is never a one-man show. [I’ll] do my best to serve you and do what the county needs.”

Steve Fischmann, winner in District 5, New Mexico Public Regulation Commission
“Utilities are running the PRC. In many cases, they are looting the state.”

U.S. Representative candidate Xochitl Torres-Small, on her tight race with Republican Yvette Herrell
“[It’s important to wait] until every person’s voice is heard.”

REPUBLICANS

Bev Courtney, who lost NM Representative, District 37
“I wanted to be pro-life because the law and our culture hinges on protecting the basic rights of the mother and child … [After this] I’m going back to work. I teach concealed carry. The best line of defense is the front line, the closest, if the teacher is willing and able, I would let them be armed … Right now, I’m tired but I won’t say no [if asked to run again]. I said no last time and here I am.”

Jackie Straley, watch party attendee and voter
“The polls closed at 7 but we were there until 7:30. There were record numbers, I guess, this year.”

Betty Bishop, Doña Ana County Republican Party chair
“Win or lose our plan is to grow and expand – recruit more people and get more voters involved in the party.”
