Xochitl Liana Torres Small (born November 15, 1984 (age 37)) is a Democrat lawyer and politician who served as the U.S. representative from New Mexico's 2nd district.

U.S. House of Representatives[edit]

2018 U.S. House election in New Mexico's 2nd district[edit]

Steve Pearce, who had served as the Republican representative from New Mexico's second district for three full terms since 2011, declined running for re-election in 2018, instead seeking to become the governor of New Mexico,[1] ultimately losing to the pro-infanticide Michelle Lujan Grisham by a wide margin.

Although New Mexico's 2nd congressional district generally leans Republican and had a majority in favoring Donald Trump in the 2016 U.S. presidential election,[2] Torres Small was still barely able to be elected to the United States House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections due to a blue wave, defeating Republican candidate Yvette Herrell by less than 2% of the vote.[3]
