CLOVIS -- Back in 2005, the fate of Cannon Air Force Base was uncertain. It was among dozens of Air Force bases set to close for good.

But more than a decade later, Cannon Air Force Base is still open and still employing 6,000 military and civilian personnel. 

Sen. Pete Domenici along his former delegation worked hand-in-hand to ensure the success of cannon for many years to come. Domenici was able to secure funds and a new mission for the 27th Special Operations Wing.

With that new mission, Cannon Air Force Base continues to operate, giving the economy a boost. Today, Cannon has an estimated economic impact of more than $500 million on communities in Curry and Roosevelt counties.
