Today the East Mountain Tea Party, with the help of Conservative Code Red, questioned the Candidates for House District 1 regarding their position concerning the building of a mosque near Ground Zero in New York.
Here is the statement from Jon Barela’s office:
We were unable to get a statement from Martin Heinrich’s office, so we presented him with a letter:
August 17, 2010
Honorable Martin Heinrich
20 First Plaza NW, Suite 603
Albuquerque, NM 87102
RE: Mosque at Ground Zero
Dear Congressman Heinrich:
On Friday, August 13, President Obama indicated his support for the mosque being built near Ground Zero in New York City. Despite the conflicting remarks the next day, a spokesman reaffirmed President Obama’s position quoted from the White House Iftar Dinner Friday.
In light of President Obama’s remarks supporting the building of a mosque at the hallowed site of the worst terrorist attack in American history, we, the undersigned and your constituents, are requesting your position as to whether you support or oppose the building of the mosque at Ground Zero.
We would appreciate a speedy response, in letter form, addressing your official position on this very important issue to your constituents.
We eagerly await your reply.
Therese Cooper and Felicia Wilson present Martin Heinrich’s
office with a letter asking him to state his position on the
mosque being built by Ground Zero in New York.
