Washington D.C. — Responding to the news of Senator Tom Udall’s retirement, Latino Victory Fund Senior Advisor Adrian Saenz issued the following statement:

“With nearly half of the state’s population being Hispanic, it’s crucial that the next U.S. Senator from New Mexico be Hispanic. Latino Victory Fund is committed to continuing to increase Latino representation in Congress, and we will be there every step of the way to help elect a Hispanic Democrat from New Mexico to the United States Senate.”
