Sen. Martin Heinrich
U.S. Senator from New Mexico
Senator Martin Heinrich is the junior United States Senator for New Mexico. Elected in 2012, Heinrich serves on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources, Intelligence, and Joint Economic Committees.
Heinrich is a committed advocate for New Mexico's middle-class families and a champion for his state’s burgeoning clean energy economy and treasured public lands. As the only engineer in the Senate, Heinrich brings a unique perspective to creating good, sustainable jobs, and protecting the vital missions at our national labs and military installations.
Prior to being elected to the Senate, Heinrich served two terms in the House where he voted to cut taxes for the middle class, worked to make college more affordable, and improved benefits for veterans. He passed legislation to remove barriers to homeownership for Native families, and championed the DREAM Act as an original cosponsor.
Before serving in Congress, Heinrich was the Albuquerque City Council President and the Natural Resources Trustee for the State of New Mexico. Martin is driven by his working-class upbringing, his wife, Julie, his two young sons, and the great people of New Mexico.
