Fighting the national tide, New Mexico Rep. Heather A. Wilson clung to a narrow lead Wednesday in her bid to keep her Democratic-leaning district in Republican hands. Wilson was ahead of her opponent, Democratic state Atty. Gen. Patricia Madrid, by roughly 1,300 votes out of more than 200,000 ballots cast. Madrid was hoping to pull ahead after a count of absentee votes and other outstanding ballots, which might not be completed until Friday.

It was just three weeks before election day 2006, and Rep. Heather A. Wilson was on the ropes. Opinion polls showed the New Mexico Republican trailing her Democratic opponent in a tough campaign. Even with the support of Wilson's influential mentor, Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.), many Republicans feared she would lose her seat and cost the party control of the House. One person in a good position to help Wilson was U.S. Atty. David C.

ALBUQUERQUE -- Heather Wilson made national headlines recently by forcing the Bush administration to brief members of Congress on its domestic wiretapping program. But here at home, the Republican congresswoman defends Bush's tax cuts and prescription drug plan, reaches out to AIDS patients and pursues issues -- like protecting pets -- that transcend partisan labels. "This is not a typical Republican district," Wilson said, "and I'm not a typical Republican."

Rep. Heather Wilson (R-N.M.) said in a statement issued in Albuquerque that she planned to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Pete V. Domenici, her political mentor.

Re "Prosecutors testify on their firings," March 7 I think it is disgusting the way the Bush administration, with the help of New Mexico Republicans Sen. Pete Domenici and Rep. Heather Wilson, have railroaded U.S. Atty. David Iglesias out of office because he refused to play their political games. Iglesias and seven other federal prosecutors were forced to resign to make way for other political appointees, such as Timothy Griffin, a Republican operative for chief White House political advisor Karl Rove.

Re "Lawmakers Hear Details of Spy Program," Feb. 9 How refreshing to see Rep. Heather A. Wilson (R-N.M.) refuse to march in lock-step with the Republicans on the president's inability to see what illegal wiretapping does to U.S. citizens. Is this what we are shoving down the throats of Iraqis -- our decent America? How hypocritical. This is why we won't let the issue drop. Bush has not aided at all in making us safer with illegal wiretapping. Instead, he has shaken us all to our core with the lies of his administration.
