WASHINGTON (August 6, 2012) – A large television ad buy entitled “Who’s Wilson With?” will began airing today on broadcast and cable television in the Las Cruces region of New Mexico. The ads are sponsored by the NRDC Action Fund, which earlier this year joined a broad coalition of environmental and conservation groups who are supporting New Mexico Congressman Martin Heinrich’s campaign for the U.S. Senate.  

“When given the chance to stand up for the health and safety of children and families in New Mexico, Heather Wilson sided with polluters and their big checks,” said Heather Taylor-Miesle, NRDC Action Fund Director. “We believe it is our duty to inform voters in New Mexico of Wilson’s actions in Congress.  When someone asks who’s Wilson with, we think the answer is clear: corporate polluters.”
