About Me

I'm running for New Mexico State Senate District #33. I ran for NM State Representative 4 years ago and feel more of a need to run, to pick up votes up and down ballot for Democrats in my state and at the national level. My DU family provided much support 4 years ago (much with the help of our beloved Pinboy3niner) and I know I can count on support now. We're in this together. I have received the endorsements/support of Planned Parenthoood Votes New Mexico; AFSCME American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees; NEA National Education Association of New Mexico; AFT-NM American Federation of Teachers New Mexico; Sierra Club; and named a Gun Sense Candidate by Moms Demand Action. I was concerned in my interviews as I shared that I was running a Combined Campaign to elect Democrats up and down ballot, that I would not provide only my campaign information but always include information for (especially, because she is in a very tight race) US Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small, President Biden and all the local state senate, state representatives, county clerk, treasurer and commissioner. I worked hard to get a full ballot of Democrats, first time in over 25 years. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/committee-to-elect-denise-lang-browne-1

'Go back to Africa...' says my County Commissioner

His racism and veiled instigation of violence ( “The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat....” retweeted by Trump).
This is why I ran for office. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-07-28/dems-slam-cowboys-for-trump-boss-for-back-to-africa-video%3f_amp=true

Thom Hartmann and DUer Omaha Steve inspired me to run for office & I'm asking for DU support

Thom Hartmann suggested in a program several years ago that we progressives need to step up, step out of our comfort zone and run for local offices....he said, "If not you, who? If not now, when?" Now I first heard those phrases decades ago but it hit me differently when Thom said them specifically about running for office...I think seeing Omaha Steve share about his running for office, about his campaign that I began to think for the first time about my running for office. I'm grateful to both these men. I want to see more DUers run for office and I hope this makes them think about it.

Our county has the County Commissioner whose video Trump shared saying, "The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat." We haven't elected a Democrat in over 25 years so Democrats quit running. I have been active in the county and state Democratic Party for a little less time than I've been a member of DU (since 2003). I have been very active in recruiting other Democrats to run and this year we have a full ticket: 2 state senators, 2 state representatives (our county is split into multiple Districts, a County Commissioner, County Treasurer and County Clerk.

Donations made to my campaign will fund a combined campaign where I will very actively work for one of the most challenged US Congresswoman, Xochitl Torres Small...she's running in a very tight race. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/committee-to-elect-denise-lang-browne-1
