This week, we begin our series of one-on-one interviews with candidates for federal office. Heather Wilson won the Republican nomination for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Jeff Bingaman. Long considered by national Republicans to be a promising candidate for office, Wilson – who held the First Congressional District seat in New Mexico from 1998 to 2009 – is in a battle with the current CD1 congressman, Democrat Martin Heinrich.
We’ve extended invitations to everyone running for either the U.S. House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate. When schedules allow, we’ll air both candidates for the same office in the same show. We’ll post them together online, too.
