New Mexico Telegram: Heinrich supports Udall’s ‘constitutional option’

New U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich supports Sen. Tom Udall’s “constitutional option” towards reforming the filibuster in the Senate.

Heinrich was elected in November and sworn in as a U.S. Senator last week.

Heinrich replaces Jeff Bingaman, another strong proponent of filibuster reform.

Heirnich spokeswoman Whitney Potter said in an email to New Mexico Telegram, “Martin supports Senator Tom Udall’s efforts to reform the filibuster through the constitutional option and looks forward to working alongside him to ensure that the Senate rules do not result in gridlock or prevent vital legislation from moving forward.”
