NM McCain Headquarters Provides "Real-Life Civics Lesson"

The lawn outside the McCain Campaign Headquarters on 5643 Jefferson NE was flooded with kids. The youths ate volunteer-provided food and played with little John McCain dolls, which very honestly depicted Sen. McCain's hairline. Inside, dozens of volunteers manned phones, calling people who had been identified as likely to vote for McCain. Volunteer Barry Krakow says children as young as 7 were making phone calls on behalf of the campaign. “It's something I encourage parents to get their kids involved in," Krakow says. "It's a real-life civics lesson."

Krakow says he hopes volunteers young and old can reach tens of thousands of New Mexicans today before the polls close at 7 p.m.
