There is another election coming! Please read the summary on who the progressive Democrat Martin Heinrich is and what he stands for. He continues to obstruct President Trump in every way he can.
The son of a utility company lineman and a factory seamstress, Heinrich came to New Mexico after graduating from the University of Missouri. He took a job doing mechanical drawings at an Albuquerque laboratory but soon went to work for AmeriCorps, then-President Bill Clinton’s public service initiative aimed at recent college graduates. In 1996, he took a job with the Cottonwood Gulch Foundation in Albuquerque, a nonprofit that aims to get youths connected with the outdoors.
He won election to the City Council in 2003, representing Albuquerque’s Southeast Heights, and served as council president in 2006. Heinrich was elected to the Albuquerque-based 1st Congressional District seat in 2008. He served in the U.S. House from 2009 to 2013 and the U.S. Senate since January 3, 2013.
Although named the “most beautiful” person on Capitol Hill in 2009 by The Hill newspaper, Heinrich has maintained a relatively low profile on the Washington scene
Basically, Martin is a career politician who has no real work experience which may explain why he doesn’t understand the people who work for a living, pay taxes, etc. If you look at his voting record, he basically supports some Native American issues, outdoor recreation issues, and environmental issues. His voting record shows that he votes against almost every Republican proposal and with the Democrats the majority of the time. He and his family live in the Washington D.C. area so how can he possibly represent our state? He only talks with Democrats and hasn’t shown up for any debates except those recently televised on TV.
