We don't need no stinking corporate toadies in my district

Barela wants to snatch NM-01 from Martin Heinrich, our terrific Congressman. Barela's people were the ones who called me last week with the most obnoxious push poll designed to link Martin with big spending and Nancy Pelosi. They got an earful from me. Vile creatures.

If you live in Albuquerque, vote Martin Heinrich for Congress on November 2.

He's a solid progressive working for New Mexico families.

Susankay noted in the comments that "Martin does not distance himself from HealthCare Reform or other courageous stands." Very true. I just got a notice today that "he signed [a letter] with 45 other House members to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urging that the Congress vote on permanent tax cuts for the middle-class before adjournment in October. "

I had written, asking him to do so. While I doubt that I made the difference, I am very pleased to see him take a stand for working folk, refusing to let the Goopers or waffling Senate Dems brush this off.

Good luck with this, Paul - sounds like we need more, not less, like Mr. Heinrich!

Frosh reps like Heinrich and Grayson (the outspoken one from Florida) give me hope. I support them both with money and I ain't no rich guy.
