Since 2013, Martin Heinrich has served as a U.S. Senator from New Mexico, repping the Democratic Party. Previously, he was a U.S. Representative in the House for his state, but later replaced Jeff Bingaman in 2012 when the former Senator retired. Early in his career, Heinrich was on the Albuquerque City Council and was appointed as the state’s Natural Resources trustee by then-Governor Bill Richardson.


Like many of his Democrat colleagues in Congress, he shares the same political beliefs. He originally voted for the ACA, supports legislation for gun violence (even though he’s a former member of the NRA), and has been an outspoken voice regarding environmental issues, advocating for wind and solar power while in the City Council, and opposing the Keystone Pipeline.
