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

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

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]
