New Mexico Democrats create Native American caucus

The Democratic Party of New Mexico has created its first Native American Caucus.

Laura Harris, Comanche, is the chairwoman of the new caucus. She said New Mexico is only the second state with a Native caucus. California's Democratic Party created the first one in 1998.

Native Americans make up about 10 percent of the state population. Harris said Natives are 16 percent of the Democratic vote. She said 75 percent of registered Native voters are Democrats.
