CD2 Democratic Convention in Las Cruces, New Mexico

June 25, 2016

The Congressional District 2 Democratic Convention in Las Cruces, New Mexico was quite an experience. Many people were in attendance and campaigning to be delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania taking place the last week of July, 2016.

Merrie Lee Soules, running for Congress from Congressional District 2 was there with her big RV passing out t shirts, buttons and water. Maggie Toulouse Oliver, running for Secretary of State, was unable to come, but her staff was in attendance with really cute signs, taking pictures of everyone who would hold up a sign.

Donna Swanson, her husband, Jeff, Carla Kerr and husband, Doug were there from Alamogordo, New Mexico along with CD2 officer Stephanie DuBois also from Alamogordo. It was also good to see the sisters from Mescalero, New Mexico, Donalyn Torres and Myrna Torres there.

The convention was a lot of fun and Carla met some wonderful people interested in making our government work for all of the people, not for just a few. Now, it is onward and upward to Albuquerque. Carla filed as a candidate for Delegate-At-Large to the Democratic National Convention in high hopes of being elected at the Democratic State Convention in Albuquerque on Saturday, June 25, 2016.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photography for the great pictures.

This is all I have to say for now.
