GOOD NEWS: Republicans abandon key swing southwestern State of New Mexico.by Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Sep. 04, 2012, under 2012 United states senate races, Hispanic Latino Vote, Independent voter centrist moderate swing vote, Women Voters
Just in from the Daily Kos which confirms what I have known in my gut all along. Republicans are abandoning states with heavy Hispanic population and focusing on the northeastern part of the United States. Republicans are the modern day DIXIECRATS who don’t want a big tent. They are after the white vote while damning all minorities and suppressing the elderly vote, the handicapped, and disabled voters, too.
The Republican Party is so last generation.
From Daily Kos:
Dose of Tequila, this is what winning in November looks like two months out. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is pulling its resources out of New Mexico, which until recently was considered a toss-up race by election forecasters. Further, the NRSC is shifting the $3 million it had reserved for New Mexico to North Dakota, which until recently was a Senate race Republicans thought they could take for granted. By essentially conceding what was supposed to be a toss-up race in order to hang on to what was supposed to be a safe one, Republicans are admitting they are losing the battle for the Senate. This makes it clear Democrats can not only defend the Senate, but that progressives can upgrade the Senate with candidates like Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, Chris Murphy in Connecticut, Mazie Hirono in Hawaii, Martin Heinrich in New Mexico, and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin.
