9/28/12 New Mexico in Focus Audio: Episode 613

This week on NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS, former congresswoman and current Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Heather Wilson sits down for a one-on-one conversation about her policy priorities and her campaign to return to Washington, D.C.

Political analyst and women’s rights advocate Martha Burk returns to talk about budget priorities for Republicans and Democrats, and how savvy women should look at economic plans before they step into the voting booth.

The Line opinion panel takes on Spaceport U.S.A.  The Associated Press recently highlighted the commercial “space race” between states and the work left to be done before New Mexico’s space travel facility can truly compete.

The panel also looks at recent reports concerning the ethical conduct of current and former state lawmakers.

Plus, the group catches up with the latest campaign trail news.
