Last evening, US Senate candidate Martin Heinrich had an event with US Sen. John Kerry. Rob Nikolewski who happens to work for the Rio Grande Foundation, but runs Capitol Report New Mexico, received an invitation to the event as did several other media outlets. Rob attempted to go to the event to cover it, but was denied access by Heinrich’s staffers.
Read the full story and see video of the encounter here. As Rob points out in his story, he has covered Heinrich as a Representative and as a candidate many times over the years and has always treated him fairly. I’m not sure what Sen. Kerry was going to say that was so mind-blowing or controversial, but it certainly makes the campaign look like they have something to hide.
