Rep. Heather Wilson (R-N.M) will run for the New Mexico Senate
seat that is expected to open up officially later Thursday when Sen. Pete Domenici (R) declares that he will not seek reelection in 2008, according to a source familiar with Wilson’s decision.
Unnamed source, so it isn't official yet. Yesterday a spokesman told me that Wilson wouldn't be discussing this possibility until at least after Domenici's official announcement. The piece notes Wilson is a strong campaigner, but faces the same Iglesias baggage as Domenici.
