NPR's Ina Jaffe reports on the battle for New Mexico's five electoral votes. That's not a lot when it takes 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency, but in a close election — as the battle between President Bush and Sen. John Kerry is shaping out to be — it could be crucial. Four years ago, former Vice President Al Gore won the state by just 366 votes.
