Tribes endorse Acoma attorney to replace Haaland

New Mexico Representative Deb Haaland is expected to become Secretary of Interior after Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced her support for the nomination. 

State Representative for New Mexico's 26th District, Georgene Louis is a citizen of the Acoma Pueblo. Her bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctor are from the University of New Mexico and she serves as general counsel of the Pueblo of Tesuque. 
The Georgene Louis for Congress campaign today announced a major new endorsement from the Coalition of Large Tribes, a critical coalition of tribes that advocates for issues facing American Indian tribes with land bases exceeding 100,000 acres. “As a proud member of the Pueblo of Acoma, I’m so grateful to have gained some exciting support this week from the Coalition of Large Tribes,” said Georgene Louis. “If I’m fortunate enough to become the newest Congresswoman from New Mexico, I will fight every day to build off the important work of Congresswoman Haaland, serve as an effective Native voice in Congress, and deliver on the issues important to our communities."
