Heinrich's GOP opponent?

New Mexico political analyst Joe Monahan is reporting that a GOP frontrunner has emerged to challenge freshman Rep. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) in 2010.

Kevin Daniels, who owns a New Mexico funeral home chain, is seriously exploring the race and would have the resources to partially self-finance a campaign in the Albuquerque-area First District.

Heinrich has already begun restocking his campaign coffers in preparation for reelection, raising $271,000 last quarter and now has $201,000 in his campaign account.
