High Country News;9/18/2006, Vol. 38 Issue 17, p6
The article focuses on the two New Mexico Congressional candidates, Republican incumbent Representative Heather Wilson and Democratic candidate Patricia Madrid. Representative Wilson has been serving since 1998 and is supporting the war in Iraq as well as the state's nuclear weapons and oil industries. Madrid on the other hand, the state's first female district judge, is favoring wage increase, the prevention of Social Security privatization, and the establishment of a timeline to withdraw forces from Iraq. Although their respective parties support them, voters are undecided with their choice because Wilson may be affected by the low rating of the Republican party and Madrid is affected with the indictment charges given to the two state treasurers under her jurisdiction.
