ALBUQUERQUE — Diners, cooks and wait staff stood and cheered and an “order up” bell rang out loudly from the kitchen to honor Sen. John McCain as he entered Barelas Coffee House on 4th Street Tuesday morning.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee, accompanied by Chairman Allen Weh of the Republican Party of New Mexico, joined several small business owners and minority business leaders for a roundtable discussion. The group included Albuquerque attorney and business owner Jon Barela and New Mexico Hispano Chamber of Commerce President Carlo Lucero.
Following the roundtable talk, McCain got in the “Straight Talk Express” and traveled to Hotel Albuquerque for a 10 a.m. Town Hall. Some 100 protesters yelled peace slogans at the colorful bus and waved signs expressing other concerns.
McCain, 71, told the crowd of some 500 supporters at the town Hall that Los Alamos will play a significant role in energy renewal if he’s elected to the White House, promising to tap scientists to work on finding new energy sources.
“We can use the talent and intellect right here in our national labs to help solve this,” he said.
