Martin Heinrich landed a big endorsement Tuesday as the Navajo Nation announced they are supporting the Democrat in his U.S. Senate race against Heather Wilson.

The Navajo Nation Council said it supports candidates who will show leadership on Navajo issues.

The council cited Heinrich's record on supporting Social Security, veterans benefits and Native American health care as reasons for their support of Heinrich.
