Biden, Governor Bill in the South Valley
Hoping to energize the base, Vice Presidential candidate Sen. Joe Biden was in Mesilla this afternoon. Governor Richardson came into town this afternoon as well, and will campaign through tomorrow in the region for Obama and local Democratic candidates. He will appear in Sunland Park tomorrow With just two weeks to go, and with early voting in full swing, Dona Ana County is now a target for the Obama campaign, which hopes to improve on the 2200 vote majority it gave John Kerry four years ago. Many have reported an apparent lack of enthusiasm in the county for the elections, and these visits, and perhaps more in the future, are designed to improve the turnout in the county in favor of Obama, who remains ahead of McCain in recent polls of the state.
