Skip to comments.Editorial: Stick With Steve Pearce In U.S. House District 2 (NM ABQ Journal)

U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce is a seasoned Beltway pragmatist who says he is running for re-election because this is a turning point for the nation.
Pearce, a Republican from Hobbs, is seeking a fifth term representing southern New Mexicos 2nd Congressional District, a seat he won back after an unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate in 2008. Pearce held the District 2 seat from 2002-2008. He also served in the state House of Representatives.
Pearce believes the nation is at a decision point and worries it may be going the way of failing European nations.

I'll go out on a limb and predict they endorse Romney for President but haven't a clue about the other two.
All the Republicans endorsed lost.

Pearce really is one of the few good guys!
Seeing Wilson’s candidacy so far this year disproves the theory that she could’ve held Domenici’s seat in 2008. Also appalling that Janice Arnold-Jones’s candidacy in NM-1 is similarly weak. Jon Barela should’ve been the nominee.
