First time exuberance measured against tempered experience kept audience members on the edge of their seats during Tuesday’s political forum.
“I’m glad you can see the difference here tonight between us – my opponent offers no solutions,” said Republican challenger Tom Mullins about Congressional District 3 incumbent Democrat Ben Ray Luján, who has served one two-year term in Washington.
Mullins is an engineer, small businessman and entrepreneur from Farmington.
“I’ve never run for office before but I think we’re at a critical juncture in our history,” Mullins said.
The League of Women Voter’s of Los Alamos and the American Association of University Women cosponsored Tuesday’s forum in which candidates fielded questions from the audience virtually along party lines.
Luján spoke in support of keeping the education department intact – Mullins calls for dismantling it.
“We’ve had a federal department of education for 40 years — what has it gotten us?” Mullins said. “I believe in you more than I believe in the federal government.”
Luján said for too long the focus in America has not been on the middle class.
