The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque received its first presidential candidate visit of 2012 on Tuesday morning. But despite New Mexico’s status on the fringe of the states considered up-for-grabs in 2012, it wasn’t from President Obama or Mitt Romney.
Peta Lindsay, the nominee of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, interacted with staff and students advocating her addition to the New Mexico voting ballot.
Lindsay is technically not a legal candidate as she is only 28 and the Constitution requires that all presidential candidates be at least 35 years old. The anti-war and immigration advocate has managed to make it onto the ballot in 13 states, excluding New Mexico.
