Former Democratic Federal Communications Commission member Gloria Tristani
was soundly defeated in her bid for a New Mexico Senate seat by Republican
incumbent Pete Domenici, 66 percent to 34 percent, according to CNN.com's
(http://www.cnn.com/) race-by-race returns.
Calling hers a 'spirited, issue-based, grassroots campaign,' Tristani opined
that her opponent 'opted to hide behind a multimillion-dollar advertising blitz,
scripted appearances and the entrenched power of incumbency.'
