CNN is highly covering Colorado, New Mexico, and Pennsylvania because they are swing states. These states are extremely important in this election because for those states, every vote counts. Though it is said that every vote counts either way, these states have a huge impact on who is elected president.
Nevada, another swing state, seems to be going toward Sen. McCain. Though it is early, a high percentage of the votes have already been cast, and the absentee ballots are taking affect.
I hope every voter in these states comes out and take their time to vote for who they believe will be the best in this historical election.
