The South Valley With Two Weekends to Go

Many people I know have commented on the lack of enthusiasm in the South Valley this election. You see very few signs. Political events are not well attended. There appears to be little discussion about the election or its stakes for the Valley.

With just two weekends to go, we will see if any of the campaigns can generate enthusiasm down here. Will Joe Biden's appearance of Friday in Mesilla light up the campaign? Will Governor Bill Richardson's appearances ignite a groundswell of support? Most important, will the turnout rate for the election be high?

Would anybody like to comment on why it appears there isn't much interest in the elections here this year?
