Wilson campaigns as 'common-sense' conservative

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

No stranger to Los Alamos, Rep. Heather Wilson, R-N.M., paid a visit to the county Friday in her bid to win the Republican nomination to try to fill the shoes of departing Sen. Pete Domenici.First, she faces Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M., of Hobbs and the winner of that contest is likely to meet Rep. Tom Udall, D-N.M., of Santa Fe.Although Wilson represents  New Mexico’s First Congressional District, centered in Albuquerque, Wilson has maintained a close relation to Los Alamos and has served as a kind of honorary representative for the local Republicans and other residents during much of her nine-year tenure.In a visit to the Monitor Friday, she talked about the race she has entered and what it means to be running as a “common sense” conservative. She said she believes in free enterprise and low taxes and “what works for New Mexico,” a strong national defense and secure borders. Other key issues in her campaign include the economy and jobs and environmental policy.Wilson said in her five terms as representative, she has never had an easy race.“I’m from a district that votes Democratic,” she said.
