Democrat Rocky Lara promises to stand for southern New Mexico

Roxanne "Rocky" Lara is an attorney who formerly served on the Eddy County Commission. Lara is running for Congress in New Mexico's 2nd congressional district on the Democratic ticket, facing incumbent Steve Pearce.

Lara dropped by Ruidoso on her final push tour of the 19-county district she is running in to bring community Democrats a message of hope and encouragement to vote.


Democratic candidate for U.S. House of Representatives Rocky Lara visits Silver City

Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives Roxanne "Rocky" Lara visited Silver City on Thursday evening to participate in New Mexico's Economy Forum, an event sponsored by Western New Mexico University's Miller Library, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA de WNMU), Chicana/o and Hemispheric Studies program, the WNMU Native American Club and the Grant County Democratic Party.


Lara to challenge longtime U.S. Rep Pearce

Steve Pearce has never lost a race for the U.S. House seat in the state's Second Congressional District. The five-term incumbent won by a whooping 18 percentage points in 2012 in a district that has only elected a Democrat one time since 1981 when Republican Joe Skeen was first elected, that coming when Pearce stepped down in 2008 to seek the Senate seat vacated by Pete Domenici.

Roxane "Rocky" Lara, a former county commissioner from Eddy County, said she will be the one to break that streak.
