Congressman Martin Heinrich spent the day on the campaign trail here in New Mexico saying that he will never take voters for granite and will work hard for every vote until they are counted on election day. Congressman Heinrich has a proud history of supporting democratic values for New Mexicans both in this state and in Washington D.C. He is a candidate for the senatorial seat now held by Senator Jeff Bingaman. Senator Bingaman is retiring after a long distinguished career as a public servant for New Mexico.

Delegate groups will be supporting voting blocks such as Hispanic, Native Americans, and women. New Mexico has one of the most diverse populations in this part of the country. Democratic candidates are proud to provide representation and support for all New Mexicans in this state.
The Republican Party has failed in supporting the diversity in this state so voters have turned to the Democratic Party for support and understanding. The current governor is too busy pandering to powerful white rich republicans and corporations to give honest representation to the many subcultures in our state.
The next three days will be filled with opportunities for the Democratic Party to shine in front of the whole country. Many major democratic leaders will be speaking about the issues facing this country. The convention will end on Thursday as President Obama accepts his parties nomination for reelection to the oval office.
