Meet the Candidate

Dr. Darshan Patel

New Mexicans deserve better leadership. I am running for Congress because Washington isn’t delivering for working families and we can do better.

For years, I’ve been fighting for families like yours.

I grew up in New Mexico, attended our schools, and made this my home. After college, I was a High School Math Teacher before attending medical school, and now I am a Rural Doctor in Lea County, NM. I’m proud to serve as the President of the Committee of Interns and Residents, a national union affiliate of SEIU comprised of Resident Physicians.

When I’m in Congress, you can trust that I will:

Work to expand access to healthcare.

Create high-quality, good-paying jobs to expand the middle class.

Fight for the common-sense issues that New Mexicans care about, like capping the costs of prescription drugs.

Rural Physician

I chose to practice in rural New Mexico because I have seen the systemic inequities in our healthcare system and I knew I wanted to help.


National Labor Leader

I’m the President of the Committee of Interns and Residents, a national healthcare affiliate of SEIU representing over 20,000 doctors.  Now more than ever, we need candidates who understand the power of the labor movement and collective organizing.


Son of New Mexico

I grew up here, I went to school here, and I serve New Mexico everyday as a rural doctor.  I love our state and I know that extremists like Yvette Herrell will never deliver results for New Mexico families like mine or yours.
