After news broke that Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) would not be running for re-election, Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) announced she would be seeking Domenici’s seat. Domenici continued to be “dogged” by questions about his role in the U.S. attorney scandal, but Wilson isn’t in the clear either. Like Domenici, Wilson made “unprecedented” — and possibly illegal — phone calls to U.S. attorney David Iglesias pressuring him to prosecute Democrats before the Nov. 2006 elections.
