New Mexico Senate: Wilson to Announce Candidacy

Wilson is expected to be the first official candidate in the race since five-term Democrat Sen. Jeff Bingaman announced his retirement on Feb. 18.

Her entry into the open seat contest hands Republicans a top shelf recruit in a contest the party believes it has a realistic shot at winning.
