6. Compared to most western towns, Santa Fe is the City Different

Santa Fe’s different from most smaller western cities when it comes to regional transportation. They’ve got rail commuter service to Albuquerque and relatively frequent bus service to Albuquerque’s airport.

Now compare this to places like La Junta, Trinidad, Raton, Winslow, Gallup, not to mention the plight of places that lost their passenger rail earlier like Tucumcari, Clovis, etc. I don’t see the Fibber-Tarian Tooth Fairy jumping in to fill the transportation gap.

That’s just New Mexico. Republican voters in small cities in Idaho and Montana did themselves worse.
