DSCC STATEMENT ON THE RETIREMENT OF SENATOR JEFF BINGAMAN
Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Communications Director Eric Schultz released the following statement on Senator Jeff Bingaman’s decision to retire.
“Jeff Bingaman has done a terrific job representing the people of New Mexico. He is one of the most distinguished members of our caucus, and he will be missed in the Senate. We are confident that the people of New Mexico will continue to have two Democrats representing them in the United States Senate. With a heavily-leaning Democratic state and a potential crop of out-of-touch Republican candidates, it is clear that a we will have a strong Democratic who will hold onto this seat.”
