I first reported that Republican U.S.Senate candidate Heather Wilson played the banjo back in 2007. My source for this crucial information: the godfather of New Mexico music, Al Hurricane.
Some folks who weren't around back then have looked at me in disbelief when I've mentioned that. But the Wilson campaign itself redeemed me when they came out with their recent ad showing Wilson plucking away on the old banjo.
And now the campaign has released this photo featuring Wilson jamming with the godfather himself.
Not showing favoritism here. If anyone has a photo of Martin Heinrich playing accordion with Joe West or something, please let me know.
