Blue CD2, or Blue CD2 New Mexico, is a left-progressive Super PAC that works to flip New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District from Republican control to Democratic control. The organization claims that the U.S. Representative representing the district as of August 2022, Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM) is an “unabashed Trumper and right-wing zealot.” [1]

Blue CD2 is a member of the Democratic Party-aligned coalition Field Team 6, which works to register new Democratic voters and retain the Democratic Congressional majority in the 2022 midterm elections. [2]
