SACRAMENTO – The Voter Protection Project (VPP), the largest national PAC focused on electing voting rights champions and holding Republicans accountable for their attacks on the ballot box, proudly announces support for the re-election of Representative Teresa Leger Fernandez in New Mexico’s newly redrawn 3rd Congressional District.
“Rep. Leger Fernandez’s fourth day in office as a newly elected member of Congress was January 6th, 2020. She knows first-hand how fragile our democracy is and has been a champion for voting rights since long before she was elected to public office,” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of the Voter Protection Project. “We were thrilled to be a part of the coalition that helped elect Rep. Leger Fernandez last cycle and we are stepping up again to ensure that she can continue her work on behalf of the great people of New Mexico’s 3rd district.”
“I was grateful to be endorsed by the Voter Protection Project in my first election, and I am proud to again have them by my side in this reelection campaign,” said Representative Leger Fernandez. “I’ve fought for voting rights my entire career. Working to protect our democracy and our precious right to vote is at the heart of my work in Congress today.”
After an $8.9 million dollar inaugural cycle as an organization, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022. VPP is proud to be supporting frontline members like Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez, Rep. Katie Porter, Rep. Lauren Underwood, as well as a strong group of congressional challengers like Hillary Scholten, Quaye Quartey, and Christina Bohannan.
