InfoPatricia Madrid won her first campaign in 1978 when she became the first woman elected to sit as a district court judge in New Mexico. In 1998, she became the first woman elected Attorney General of the State of New Mexico, and in 2002 she was reelected in a landslide. She has been married to L. Michael Messina, an Albuquerque lawyer, for over thirty years, and has a son, Giancarlo, who graduated from the University of New Mexico and works in Washington DC.

In October 2005, Patricia Madrid announced her candidacy for the House of Representatives (NM District One). As a member of Congress, Patricia Madrid will stand up for the interests of working men and women and will promote stronger and safer communities and a more prosperous and fair state and nation for everyone. That means reclaiming the simple promise of the American dream - that our communities will grow ever stronger and that our children will enjoy opportunities we can only imagine. Madrid firmly believes that with the right change, America's best days are still ahead of us.
