VOX: Rep. Ben Ray Luján led the charge for a Democratic House. Now he’s running for Senate.

April 2, 2019

Assistant House Speaker Ben Ray Luján has declared his candidacy for New Mexico’s Senate seat, which will be in play in 2020, now that Democratic Sen. Tom Udall is retiring.

Luján, a six-term Congress member from Santa Fe, is a rising star in House leadership. He oversaw Democrats’ sweeping 2018 midterms victory in his role as the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and is a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“We stood side-by-side as I led the effort to win back the House, so we could lower prescription drug prices, lower health care costs, fight for clean air and clean water, restore voting rights and equal rights and build a brighter future for our kids,” he said in his announcement video. “But to move forward, we’ve got to fix the Senate where Mitch McConnell stands in the way of progress.”
