    Look at Española, Chama, Pecos, most of rural Rio Arriba county, Ojo Calliente, Truchas, Taos, and Questa for examples. Most of those people are renters, not in apartments but in all those adobe casas and trailers.   Santa Fe is too damm expensive for renters anymore.  

    If I remember correctly that district is mostly Democratic until you get east of the Pecos, then it turns into the Plains farmland.  I will say, having grown up there, Northern New Mexico is different, everyone talks politics, and pays attention to what is going on.

      Truchas and Ojo, I think the percentage of those who own their residences is still fairly high compared to a city.
