DAGA Applauds New Mexico AG-Elect Raúl Torrez on Resounding Victory

November 9, 2022

Washington, DC — The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) congratulates Raúl Torrez on being elected as the People’s Lawyer in New Mexico. Torrez will continue to build on the great progress of outgoing New Mexico AG Hector Balderas.

Statement from Geoff Burgan, Communications Director, Democratic Attorneys General Association:

Congratulations to AG-elect Raúl Torrez on a hard-fought win tonight. Voters in New Mexico sent a clear message that Raúl Torrez is the right choice to replace outgoing AG Balderas.  Torrez will continue to build on Balderas’ legacy of protecting consumers, defending civil rights, and always putting New Mexican families first. He brings years of experience standing up for common sense gun safety laws, tackling the rape kit backlog, and prosecuting violent crime to the AG’s office. We want to thank AG Balderas for everything he did in his tenure to be the People’s Lawyers for all New Mexicans. We look forward to welcoming AG-elect Torrez into our room of AGs.”
