Gladys Hightower performs a soulful rendition of the National Anthem.
It was a packed house for yesterday’s grand opening of Organizing for America New Mexico’s new office in Las Vegas, New Mexico.
Students, parents, community leaders and supporters from across San Miguel County and Northern New Mexico rallied in support of President Obama’s re-election and Democrats up and down the ticket.
Congressman Ben Ray Luján underscored the importance of November’s election, saying:
“We need to step back and remember that it’s people that we’re talking about. It’s our moms and dads. It’s our friends and family. It’s our communities.
That’s what we’re fighting for. That’s the difference between President Obama and Governor Romney.”
