Today’s Blue America candidate is Martin Heinrich and he’s running for Congress in the open Albuquerque seat being deserted by Heather Wilson. He was the president of the City Council there and got a great deal accomplished, including making Albuquerque only the 4th city in the whole country with a minimum wage higher than the state or federal government.

Last night Martin put this clip together for us:
