Gwen Ifill, managing editor and moderator of "Washington Week" and senior correspondent on the PBS NewsHour, was in Albuquerque for a public event last Saturday. Ifill took time to sit down with New Mexico in Focus' Gene Grant to discuss her thoughts and opinions about the results of the mid-term elections. She and Grant also talk about the state of black politics today, which is also the subject of her recent book, "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama."
KNME's one hour public affairs show New Mexico in Focus airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 a.m. on KNME, Channel 5.1. The show can also be seen on KNME's Digital Channel 9.1 on Saturdays at 5 p.m.
Also this week, the line panelists discuss which of Gov. Richardson's projects may be most in jeopardy in a Martinez administration, and the future of the Bush tax cuts.
