Rep. Heather Wilson, R-N.M., got an earful when she visited Los Alamos recently for one stop on her statewide “listening tour” as she kicked off her race for the United States Senate.“I heard tremendous anxiety about the budget, and what the future holds for Los Alamos,” Wilson said, adding that she was “the leader of the house opposition to those cuts – I strongly opposed the Democratic spending bill.”The congresswoman added that she felt the only alternative to massive budget cuts for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) would be a continuing resolution, under which the budget would remain flat.“It’s not ideal, but it’s better than the house bill,” Wilson said, “given the leadership in the house and the fact that Los Alamos has a congressman that’s not standing up for them.”Wilson said that prior to Thursday’s visit, she was already very familiar with Los Alamos, even though it does not lie in her congressional district, because of all of the various federal funding issues having to do with Los Alamos.She said that she decided to run for the Senate seat, which will open up on the retirement of Sen.
