SLATE IN THE STATE

Slate online magazine this week published a story about New Mexico as a swing state. Reporter Jacob Leibenluft toured the state from Las Cruces to Raton. He was in Santa Fe for the Caroline Kennedy visit where he interviews state Auditor Hector Balderas.

One thing that stuck me is Leibenluft's contention while noting the small turnout for Caroline, that "many of the press reports about her visit erroneously said the event wasn't open to the public." That's certainly not true in any of this reporter's press reports -- and I don't remember seeing that in other papers either. I do recall that Caroline's appearance at PC's wasn't announced until the day before (I confirmed it the night before it was announced) and that until then all of her New Mexico events were closed fundraisers. That had been reported by myself and others.

Anywho, check out the Slate story: CLICK HERE.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention the story published yesterday in The Guardian. Nice photo too.
