PPP also tested the state's other two districts, which are also held by freshman Democrats. The First District's Rep. Martin Heinrich leads Republican Jon Barela by 45%-36%. The Third District's Rep. Ben Lujan leads GOPer Adam Kokesh by 40%-32%, and leads GOPer Tom Mullins by 42%-36%.

"Martin Heinrich and Ben Ray Lujan look like they should be good for reelection," writes PPP president Dean Debnam, in the polling memo. "Harry Teague has built a good amount of support given how conservative his district is, but will have a hard time hanging on in this political climate."

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
