Skip to comments.Heather Wilson to Launch N.M. Senate Bid
Posted on 03/04/2011 6:24:54 PM PST by Clintonfatigued
Former Rep. Heather Wilson will announce Monday that she is running for New Mexicos open Senate seat, a GOP source confirmed to Roll Call.
Wilson told Roll Call in early January that she was considering running for the seat. At the time, she had just finished chairing incoming GOP Gov. Susana Martinezs transition team.
Reached by phone on Friday, Wilson said she has no further comment at this time.
The announcement will come nearly three weeks after Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D) announced he would not seek a sixth term next year. His exit gives New Mexico just its third open Senate seat since 1948.
Politico first reported that Wilson will announce her bid on Monday.

At this time, Heather Wilson seems to be the strongest Republican in the mix. This may be proven wrong in the future. Her voting record is acceptable, though nothing spectacular.
...but she does look like she bats for the other team...like Big Sis.
I think her husband and children would find your remark interesting. UN”like Big Sis”, Heather is a wife and mother.
She is married with two children.
Ok, I’m wrong. It’s just that picture doesn’t bode well for someone who wants to appear normal.
If you want to argue Mike Castle I could be with you though.
