"Battleground states": NM loses out!

Not all that long ago - perhaps last spring - when the Electoral College discussion began, NM was counted among the key battleground states in the Prez election.

As the campaign played out, sadly, we lost that distinction. A number of factors contributed to putting NM in Obama's favor a while ago.

Yes, the candidates still show up here - both were in town last Saturday. But, the media don't pay us much mind.

I think the talking heads could have fun discussing the possibility that NM will be entirely blue this time around: Obama for Prez, Udall for Senate, Heinrich in NM1, Teague in NM2, Lujan in NM3. An historic first!
