ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (3/19/12)--New Mexico credit union representatives from around the state met with candidates vying for a U.S. Senate seat at a town hall hosted by the Credit Union Association of New Mexico Wednesday.

At the town hall were State Rep. Martin Heinrich (D-1), former State Rep. Heather Wilson (R), and state auditor Hector Balderas (D). They are running for the seat of Jeff Bingaman (D), retiring senior U.S. senator from New Mexico.

About 25 people, including credit union board members, CEOs and staff, listened to presentations from the candidates and asked questions.

Among the topics they addressed were the Dodd-Frank Act, member business lending and taxation of credit unions.

The candidates discussed their views and records on issues affecting credit unions and their members. All three said they are long-time credit union members.

This was the first step in the candidates' quest to gain the credit union movement's endorsement in the race.
