Many New Mexicans knew of Senator Pete V. Domenici during times when he worked on behalf of their speciﬁc interest or concern. That number grew substantially through his accomplishments over a 36- year Senate career, so much so that nearly everyone in the state proudly referred to him as "their Senator in Washington." This book takes a more focused path, discussing four complex and critical issues of national and international importance where Senator Domenici took a leadership role developing solutions to long-standing problems. The author developed each chapter from information gathered through interviews with Senator Domenici and key staﬀ members who worked for the Senator on the speciﬁc issue. The material presented allows the reader a ﬁrsthand look at the Senator's perseverance and willingness to work with both Republicans and Democrats to achieve the results he believed to be in America's best interest. Much of what is written here received little media attention at the time. Each topic is self-contained, so pick the chapter that interests you the most. The book addresses only four subjects, a small sample of a long Senate career, but provides clear evidence that Senator Pete V. Domenici was "not just New Mexico's Senator."
