However the state of New Mexico was not spared, Clovis Air Force Base (Google search)is on the list to be closed. I suspect that this will wipe out Clovis, there’s not much else there. But I find statements by our elected representative funny:
Rep. Tom Udall, D-N.M., whose district includes Cannon, called the announcement “wrong-headed.”
“It would be an understatement to say that we are all surprised by the Pentagon’s decision,” Udall said.
Dude, they said they were going to close bases. Why would you be surprised that your base was picked over anyone else’s? I’m not saying they shouldn’t be upset or fight the closing, but its the supid the way such congress persons make statements of amazement and shock.
