Rep. Tom Udall has had an amazing first quarter of fundraising, pulling in $1.3 million. Udall is seeking the U.S. Senate seat left open by Republican Pete Domenici. Udall looks extremely strong against his potential Republican opponents, Heather Wilson and Steve Pearce. As an Arizonan I feel a strong connection to the Udalls’ Democratic legacy. Tom Udall’s father, Stewart Udall, represented Arizona in Congress and served as President Kennedy’s Secretary of the Interior. His uncle Morris Udall represented Arizona in Congress and was a Democratic candidate for President. His cousin Mark Udall is currently in the U.S. House from Colorado, and is now running for U.S. Senate as well (odds are good that Mark is going to be a featured candidate on here in the near future). The Udall family has been the heart and soul of the Democratic Southwest, and it is great to see the new generation continuing the legacy.
The New Mexico Senate seat is one of the Democratic Party’s best pick-up opportunities. To learn more about Tom Udall’s campaign visit his official site.
