Luján Votes to Confirm Gina Raimondo as Commerce Secretary

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, issued the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo as Secretary of Commerce:

“In New Mexico, small businesses and workers are struggling to keep their doors open and make ends meet. The next Commerce Secretary must prioritize restoring the role of science at the Department of Commerce, bolstering economic development and American competitiveness, investing in workers and job training opportunities, providing robust support for small businesses and mom-and-pop shops, and strengthening the Minority Business Development Agency,” said Luján. “Governor Gina Raimondo brings strong experience as a leader who tackled unemployment and grew local economies, and I look forward to working with her to help create good-paying union jobs in New Mexico and across America.”
