Rep. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) will go on the air with his first television ad of his Senate campaign Tuesday, a positive bio-spot introducing him to voters as a hard-working advocate for jobs.
Heinrich's campaign said the 30-second ad will air in Albuquerque and El Paso, the two largest media markets in New Mexico.
"My mom sometimes worked 7 days a week at the local wheel factory. My dad worked for the power company and ran our small family farm," Heinrich says in the ad.
Photographs from his childhood are displayed as Heinrich explains how he started working at age 12 and learned about the dignity of hard work from watching his parents.
“For me, fighting for people’s jobs is personal," he says. "That’s why I’m proud of getting Albuquerque’s minimum wage raised, extending unemployment benefits and holding job fairs to help people find work.”
