NM Senate Candidates and the Ryan Plan

I almost forgot to link to my story in Tuesday's New Mexican about the major U.S. Senate candidates from both  parties and their positions on the controversial Ryan budget.

The Dems, Martin Heinrich and Hector Balderas, to absolutely no one's surprise, both are dead set against plan, which would eventually privatize Medicare.(Both current New Mexico senators, Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall, Democrats bothn voted against the Ryan budget last week.)

The Republicans, Heather Wilson and John Sanchez, are on the proverbial fence. Neither would outright endorse the plan, but neither wanted to say exactly why/ Sanchez said that no plan is perfect. Wilson said she doesn't agree with all the plan, but she would rather talk about why the Democrats suck.
