3 GOP Senators to Stump For Wilson

Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of  New Hampshire, are coming to Albuquerque next week to campaign for U.S. Senate candidate Heather Wilson.

 “New Mexico’s Senate race could very well determine the future of this country,”  McCain said in a news release today. “Heather Wilson is the only candidate New Mexicans can trust to put a stop to the reckless spending and turn this economy around. The nation is watching.”

But while they're praising Wilson for wanting to stop spending, all three senators -- who serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee --  have been holding events around the country to talk about the important of not cutting defense spending.-- namely the automatic cuts to the Pentagon scheduled to take place next year.

The senators will hold a media event in Albuquerque on Sept. 25 to talk about national security and attend a private fundraiser in Albuquerque. No further details were available in the news release.
