Congresswoman-elect Yvette Herrell of New Mexico’s 2nd congressional district spoke with the Daily Caller’s Samantha Renck about her congressional win, how a Biden administration could impact immigration in New Mexico and more.
“We have a large oil and gas industry,” Herrell said about her congressional district, which is “one of the largest-producing counties in the nation.”
Herrell expressed her thoughts on President-elect Joe Biden’s energy plans and comments he made ahead of the election.
“It’s very concerning,” Herrell said. “There [are] thousands and thousands of jobs connected to the industry whether directly or indirectly. It’s a very large part of New Mexico.” (RELATED: ‘We Don’t Have To Run To The Middle East’: Fracking Company Owner Says US Can Produce Own Energy)
