US Senate Candidate Congressman Martin Heinrich at Pre-primary Convention
United States Senate Candidate; Congressman Martin Heinrich was very busy talking with the delegates as both the Congressman from the largest Congressional District in New Mexico CD1 and as a candidate for US Senate. Overall there is a large appreciation of Martin Heinrich for his being the first congressman from CD1, and for his ability to grow so much into the job of Congressman.
Martin and his wife Julie have two young boys. It is interesting to watch the children of these public figures grow up. To watch them go through there stages of shyness to being able to stand up tall in a photo with Speaker Pelosi's daughter Christine and smile perfectly, and even hold a sign on stage next to his Dad saying "Vote for my Dad".
Nominated by former Rep. J. Paul Taylor, and seconded by Rep. Moe Maestas, the following video is of the second nominating speech and Congressman Heinrich coming onto the stage and speaking to the delegates gathered from across the state.
Congressman Heinrich spoke about the importance of this 2012 election and how it will shape our country for a long long time. If elected he will build on the great foundation of past New Mexico leaders including retiring Senator Jeff Bingaman. Martin states he has always fought for the working people and the middle class. He asked the audience does it make sense that firefighters and teachers pay more taxes than Mitt Romney, the answer was a resounding Noooooo! Martin never shyed away from the tough votes. "Democrats can't win by being republican light."
