    than my screen size.  Carlsbad is probably a bit more liberal because it is home to Carlsbad Caverns National Park, and the employees of the NPS are a pretty enlightened bunch.

    Meantime, I just learned this:  

    Democrat John Heaton represented New Mexico's 55th District from 1997-2010. Republican Cathrynn Brown beat him in the 2010 election by 337 votes.

    Perhaps he'd could use our donations to return to office.

        he didn't run in 2012? Do we know whether we'd even want him back? One of our local reps who won a senate seat this year told us that it was very important that we vote because the house was only held by the Dems by one rep. I wonder why no one fielded a Dem candidate from the 55th district.

        I only knew about Eddy County because I live in Las Cruces. My daughter has worked on three NM-2 races, so I'm familiar with the counties in this district.

          No info on what happened this cycle.  I just took a look at his record from interest groups http://votesmart.org/...

          Looks all too Republican on business and gun issues, but 50/50 from environmental groups and the ACLU, and 75%-ish on union and public-finance issues.  

          In other words, a very conservative Dem as we would expect from that area.  But still way better than the likes of this forced-birth harridan.
