On Thursday, Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) addressed the Democrat National Convention and spoke about how she was one of the first Native American women elected to Congress and her focus on far-left social ideals.
Haaland said, “I’m grateful to be with you here on Indigenous land” in her opening,” going on to explain more about her ancestry, claiming she has been in New Mexico for 35 generations, which has yet to be confirmed.
“Whether we vote and how we vote will determine if our nation’s promise of social, racial, and environmental justice will outlast us. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris respect our past and understand our present. They will see us through this crisis of leadership that is plaguing our country and they will help us to build a better future,” Haaland concluded in ehr remarks.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham wrote in response to her address, “You are an inspiration to us all, @Deb4CongressNM. I feel so fortunate to call you a friend, a colleague, and a fellow New Mexican. Thank you for everything you do for our state and our country.”
“Deeply proud to watch [Deb Haaland] tonight. Thank you for speaking to promise of our country and the strength of our people. It’s an honor to call you my friend, wrote Ben Ray Luján.
