Heinrich won election to the U.S. Senate in 2012.[29] He defeated Hector Balderas in the June 5th Democratic primary and defeated Heather Wilson in the November general election.[1][3]

The University of Virginia's Center for Politics published an article called Sabato's Crystal Ball on March 22, 2012, detailing the 8 races in the Senate in 2012 that would decide the political fate of which party will end up with control in 2013.[30] The seat, rated a toss-up, was seen by Sabato's Crystal Ball as most likely to end up Democratic. The article noted that the state has generally been leaning Democratic and did not become a race with much interest until the incumbent Jeff Bingaman announced he would retire rather than seek re-election in 2012.[30] The Republican challenger Heather Wilson was expected to give Republicans a "fighting chance in a tough state for them."[30][31]
