Herrell-Mountain-Range-portrait (1) (1).

Born and raised in New Mexico, Yvette Herrell served for 4 terms in the New Mexico House of Representatives, and is the Republican nominee for U.S. Congress in New Mexico's 2nd District. As a state representative, Yvette put people before politics, championing our small businesses and representing our rural values in Santa Fe. 

An entrepreneur who has owned & operated several successful small businesses, Yvette knows that big government is not the answer. She stood against overbearing regulations and government overreach in Santa Fe, which is why Yvette was awarded as a Hero of the Year by the New Mexico Business Coalition in 2015 and was ranked #1 on the Rio Grande Foundation's Freedom Index in 2018 


Endorsed by both former Democratic Congressman Harry Teague and former Republican Congressman Steve Pearce, who together represented New Mexico's Second District for 16 of the last 18 years, Yvette will take New Mexico values to Congress and work across party lines to safely reopen our economy, defend the Constitution, and secure the border.
