New Mexico has been selected to receive a $3.7 million federal grant to help school districts turn around persistently low achieving schools.
Like other politicians eager to show the public they're not beholden to Washington's special interests, Democratic Rep. Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico has proudly refused to take campaign contributions from federal lobbyists.
Lujan's son, U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, said in a statement that his mother and family "are genuinely hurt and offended by what was said."
Lujan says New Mexico is one of seven states chosen to receive the school improvement funding.
