ALBUQUERQUE – America’s new president will be revealed a week from today and both presidential candidates held rallies Saturday in Albuquerque in what is likely to be their final sweep through New Mexico before Tuesday’s election.

As they have on five previous visits, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., addressed the economy, Iraq, health care and education.

They stressed the importance of claiming victory in New Mexico.

“My friends, we need to win New Mexico on Nov. 4,” McCain said during his Country First Rally at the state fairgrounds.

“I’m going to create wealth for all Americans by creating opportunities for all Americans.”

Wife Cindy McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., participated in the rally.

Obama’s Change We Need Rally at The University of New Mexico’s Johnson Field drew some 45,000 people. UNM fire officials estimated 35,000 were on the sports field and another 10,000 surrounded the perimeter.

“You hold this election in your hands,” Obama said adding, “Latinos, you hold this election in your hands all across the country. New Mexico – together you and I will change America and together you and I will change the world.”
