ALBUQUERQUE — Many political pundits believe Democrats will lose the House of Representatives majority in the November 2022 midterm elections. The current U.S. Senate is split evenly, 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris being the tiebreaker vote. But now Democrats face some tough decisions after losing a crucial member of their Senate Caucus.
U.S. Senator Ben Luján, D-New Mexico, checked into Christus St. Vincent Regional Hospital in Santa Fe on January 27. He complained of dizziness and fatigue, according to his official statement. Doctors determined that the 49-year-old, first-term Senator, had a stroke in his cerebellum – the back part of the brain that controls walking, motor learning, vision and more.
