Republicans register more voters in New Mexico

The Republican Party has registered more voters in New Mexico than the Democrat Party, The Washington Post reports.

The GOP's gain in the battleground state, however, is not significant. The paper said Republicans outregistered Democrats by about one percentage point.

The Democrat-sponsored Moving America Forward cited 9,000 new Native American voters. Altogether, a total of 10,000 Native Americans were said to have been registered in New Mexico, which has a 9.5 percent Indian population.

Al Gore won New Mexico in 2000 by just 366 votes.
