U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-New Mexico

U.S. Sens. Martin Heinrich and Ben Ray Luján, both Democrats from New Mexico, met with U.S. Air Force leaders to discuss investments and future plans at Cannon Air Force Base.

Notably, the Senators met with Assistant Secretary of the Air Force Dr. Ravi Chaudhary, Air Force Special Operations Command Commander Lt. Gen. Tony Bauernfeind, and Cannon Air Force Base Leadership, among others.

Heinrich said he will keep advocating for the Air Force Base and that it is vital for several New Mexico communities.

“Today, we secured a commitment that Cannon Air Force Base will remain a stronghold for the Air Force well into the future. The importance of Cannon to Clovis, Curry County, and New Mexico cannot be overstated. Cannon is also indispensable to our national security," Heinrich said in a press release issued by his office. "With the New Mexico Congressional Delegation and our strong local partners in Clovis, I will continue to advocate at the highest levels to strengthen our investments and long-term commitment to Cannon’s future success."
