Failed ex-Rep. Xochitl Torres Small, who was soundly defeated in 2020 by Congresswoman Yvette Herrell of the Second District, is reportedly being nominated on Friday for a role in the Joe Biden regime at the Department of Agriculture. The role will require U.S. Senate approval.
The White House is planning to announce on Friday that Biden will nominate former Rep. XOCHITL TORRES SMALL (D-N.M.) to be undersecretary of rural development at the Department of Agriculture, according to two sources familiar with the plans.
Torres Small is the second lawmaker who lost reelection last year whom Biden has moved to add to the administration, along with former Rep. GIL CISNEROS (D-Calif.), whom he nominated in April to be under secretary of Defense for personnel and readiness. The White House declined to comment (POLITICO).
After the Politico report, far-left Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), a resident of Maryland, applauded the decision, writing on Facebook, “…Biden could not have found a better suited person to lead his administration’s rural economic development work than Xochitl Torres Small.”
He added, “I can’t wait to support her nomination and work with her once again to advance key investments in rural economies including universal broadband deployment, affordable housing, clean water and clean energy infrastructure, and assistance for small business owners.”
But after Heinrich’s statement, constituents roasted him in the comments. Here are some of the most brutal:
“Seriously. You are so disconnected from the State you are a Senator for. How ignorant.”
“As someone who voted for her, I ended up unconvinced that there were circumstances in which she would prioritize doing the right thing over not rocking the boat.”
“Never mind that she represented Texas in one of their many fights over water with New Mexico…but yeah sure, she’s good for government…good like a virus or fungus.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) applauded Torres Small’s nomination, writing,
“Thrilled to hear @POTUS has nominated @xochnm to serve as USDA U-S of Rural Development. In her home of Las Cruces & in Congress, Xochitl has dedicated years to advancing opportunity & prosperity, esp for our rural communities, so that all can share in the American Dream.“
Torres Small was a far-left extremist while serving in Congress, backing New Mexico’s Green New Deal, “free“ college initiatives, abortion up-to-birth and infanticide, among other radical proposals championed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the socialist Squad. She accepted campaign donations from anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
