Clinton stumps for Denish

ESPANOLA — A line of people slowly began to snake its way along Hill Street near the Plaza de Española Thursday afternoon, hours in advance of President Bill Clinton’s appearance at the Diane Denish/Brian Colón rally. Though 5,000 tickets were distributed, 3,000-4,000 people showed up to the event.
The attendees waited patiently for a chance to see Denish and Clinton, who was in town to help promote Denish’s campaign for New Mexico governor. A man waiting in line got the attendees ready for the rally by leading them in a chant, screaming, “When I say Diane, you say Denish! When I say governor, you say Denish!”
Though some waited three hours or more, the gates were promptly opened at 3 p.m. and hundreds of people, many carrying Denish/Colón signs, flowed onto the plaza, quickly staking out their spots near the podium.
The event kicked off at 4 p.m. with Española Mayor Alice Lucero introducing city councilors and other city officials. Española Valley High School student Mariah Martinez sang the national anthem.
Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., stirred up the crowd when he said, “Tell me Española history isn’t wonderful. It all started here, not Jamestown or Plymouth Rock.”
