At­tor­ney Dav­id Baake (D) will run for Rep. Steve Pearce’s (R) seat in 2018. “He cited Pearce’s vote for the House health care bill as an ex­ample of why he be­lieves the dis­trict needs new rep­res­ent­a­tion. … Pearce was first elec­ted to the seat in 2002 and has served since then, with the ex­cep­tion of two years when he stepped down to make a run for Sen­ate. Pearce is con­sid­er­ing a run for gov­ernor in 2018.” (Las Cruces Sun-News)

Don­ald Trump won the dis­trict by 10 points last year.
