Senator Udall leaves behind a legacy of bolstering conservation efforts, advocating for equality, and ensuring that our great state has a seat at the table. I’m incredibly grateful for the Senator’s service, and I look forward to continue working together to fight against the Trump policies that do not represent our shared New Mexican values.
