Skip to comments.Heinrich Leading in U.S. Senate Race (NM Dem with ignored eco-terrorist connections)
Posted on 10/16/2012 9:09:20 AM PDT by CedarDave
Democratic Rep. Martin Heinrich has built a 9 percentage point lead in New Mexicos U.S. Senate race over former Republican Rep. Heather Wilson, a Journal Poll found.
Heinrich, now in his second term as the 1st Congressional District representative in the U.S. House, drew support from 48 percent of voters in the statewide poll on the Senate race, conducted Oct. 9 -11.
Thirty-nine percent of voters said they preferred Wilson, who preceded Heinrich in the 1st Congressional District seat, serving from 1998 to 2009.
Nine percent of voters remain undecided in the Senate race. The remaining 4 percent backed Independent American Party candidate Jon Barrie.

Heinrich is strongly anti-natural resource development and makes current Democrat Senator Tom Udall (5th most liberal US Senator) look moderate. The mainstream media, and indeed Wilson's campaign itself, has ignored his connections.
See this excerpt from the linked story:
You have to tip your cap to the staff of Senate Candidate Martin Heinrich. So far their efforts prevent exposure of Heinrichs deep ties to eco-terrorism advocate David Foreman, have been successful. Who is David Foreman and what does he stand for?
Forman (and Heinrich) are inextricably linked to the radical splinter group EarthFirst. Who is EarthFirst? According to New Mexico Watchdog investigative reporter Jim Scarantino, EarthFirst is a radical environmental terrorist group that emerged more than thirty years ago. Foreman who authored several action guides including, Confessions of an Eco-Warrior, was part of the concerted effort by EarthFirst to use any means available to affect policy changes. EarthFirst is well known by law enforcement agencies as a group that advocates the destruction of public and private property as a tool to achieve goals.
Foreman has compared humanity to a virus. He believes radical environmentalists are the white corpuscles fighting the human infection of Mother Earth. Why does all of this matter to New Mexico?
Martin Heinrich was mentored by David Foreman early in his adult life and supported by Forman when he broke on to New Mexicos political scene. These days while Heinrich has cloaked himself in the mainstream, he is supported by millions of dollars in negative advertising support provided by radical environmental organizations.
The scary news for New Mexicans is he may be starting to gain the upper hand in the battle for one of two New Mexico Senate seats in Washington. While Heinrich appears in fluffy commercials that make him look like the boy next door, Super Pac money pours into New Mexico paid for by these radical environmental groups. Ads which are completely false flood our airwaves. They trash former Air Force Academy graduate Heather Wilson and distort her record.
Heather Wilson brought a nerf bat to a gun fight.
Because New Mexico leftists see eco-terrorism ties as a PLUS.
I really had hopes for New Mexico after it elected Susana Martinez, but apparently voters there crave a life of submission to an all-powerful federal government.

It’s pretty depressing living in NM. Every election I go and vote and it makes little difference. This is a company town all the way.
Sure has. Milquetoast ads when hard-hitting, factual ones detailing Heinrich's background were needed.
She doesn't have an assertive personality (at least not that shows). And radical environmentalists hold sway in Santa Fe, in ABQ (UNM and students with heads full of mush liberal ideas), and in state government positions (unionized). What really hasn't been brought out to many of the poor (including Hispanics in northern NM) is what they have done to kill lumbering (spotted owl, etc.), mining (precious metals and molybdenum), oil and gas drilling/development (no pit rule, stirring local government opposition).
Now those in the SE NM oil patch know what it takes to make an economy work and grow. Lots of jobs for the taking, tax-dollars flowing to local government (and the state as a whole), and development/construction everywhere.
I am begining to feel like I moved to Eastern ‘Kalifornia’!
