    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Accidental tourist 

    Anthony, Tex. -- Sen. John Kerry stopped by the Red Rooster Cafe in this small town on the Texas/New Mexico border Saturday for some chips, salsa and iced tea after a rally in Las Cruces, N.M.

    He thought he was in New Mexico. Gov. Bill Richardson assured him he was. But it turned out that the Red Rooster was just over the line, and Kerry had inadvertently invaded President Bush's home state.

    Kerry munched, then visited for some chit-chat with the only two diners in the place, Dennis and Nancy Lukehart of El Paso, Tex. Dennis, 62, said as he ws getting into his Jeep that there is no way he would vote for Kerry because he doesn't like liberals.

    "I'm more of a onservative person - I'm real afraid of liberals," he said. Meeting Kerry didn't sway him. "I don't think anything better or anything worse than before," Dennis Lukehart said.

    Nancy, 60, is undecided, and she said it was "very exciting" to meet Kerry.

    Snack done, Kerry's motorcade went a few blocks to St. Anthony's Catholic Church for Mass.

    The church was in New Mexico.
