    Ben Lujan (D) -- Tom Mullins (R) -- Adam Kokesh (?)Incumbent U.S. Congressman Ben Lujan (D-NM, 3) was once considered 'safe' to win reelection to Congress. Yet Lujan voted for bringing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed here for federal trial, the health care bill, Cap and Trade, and the TARP bailout. In the only recent poll, a Democrat pollster now finds Lujan's lead over main Republican rival Tom Mullins has narrowed to within the margin of error, 40 to 36. Adam Kokesh running as a Republican in the primary against Mullins and his trailing Lujan only 40 to 32 are both far...

    During this tax season, U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján knows what it's like to feel the pinch of the Internal Revenue Service. Luján last month discovered that his campaign had underpaid payroll taxes for his campaign staff last year and owed the government more than $54,000 — including $13,627 in penalties and interest. His late payments to the IRS are listed on the freshman congressman's most recent campaign finance report — filed coincidentally on Wednesday, which also was the deadline for filing federal income-tax returns. His biggest contributors in the report were national labor unions. The International Brotherhood of Electrical...

    Have you heard the one about the preacher's son who was running for political office? It gets better (and by "better," I don't mean "funny.") The preacher's son, John Lujan, is an 18-year veteran of the San Antonio Fire Department. For each of those 18 years, he's voluntarily paid his dues to the union, the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association. This is the same association that operates under the umbrella of the local AFL-CIO, which represents a variety of local unions. It's also the same association that recently endorsed Lujan in his bid for state representative in House District 118....
