COUP WATCH: Nov. 12 Florida Recount -- Other States, Too? -- From Red Rock Eater

by Phil Agre Friday, Nov. 17, 2000 at 12:30 PM

Sunday, Nov. 12: The press reports that if the Bush campaign fails in its attempt to suppress the hand recounts of voters' ballots that are provided by Florida law, as seems likely, then they will implement a "scorched-earth" plan involving legal challenges to the election outcomes in Iowa, New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

Florida Recount -- From Red Rock Eater News Service Florida Recount -- Other States, Too? -- From Red Rock Eater News Service

The press reports that if the Bush campaign fails in its attempt to suppress the hand recounts of voters' ballots that are provided by Florida law, as seems likely, then they will implement a "scorched- earth" plan involving legal challenges to the election outcomes in Iowa, New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

For the situation in Florida see:

For the Bush plan see:

Bush considers recounts in Iowa, Wisconsin

For the political side see:

Bush Signed Recount Rule in Texas

If the envisioned scorched-earth plan does come to pass then it will be important to monitor the regional newspapers in Iowa, New Mexico, Oregon, and Wisconsin. To that end, some very excellent RRE readers have assembled guides to the regional newspapers and other relevant online resources in those states. I have enclosed them here: two for Iowa, followed by one each for the other states. I have edited and reformatted them, but they are not my work. Nor have I tested the URL's myself. I assume they're fine.

Let me just add that one of my favorite words in the whole English language is "slugfest". It's gotten a lot of exercise this week.

****** IOWA ******

Here are some URL's for Iowa papers:

Des Moines Register

(used to be the independent paper of Iowa -- only local paper in the country to be distributed as the major paper in all counties in the state -- taken over by Gannett in the last decade or so but still has good columnists)

DMR on the potential recount:

(Johnson County is where Iowa City is located, arguably the most liberal/progressive city in the state, home of the University of Iowa and a century of progressive activism)

More DMR campaign coverage:

----- Cedar Rapids Gazette:

CR is the second largest city in Iowa, fairly conservative


Plus, here is a list of URLs for other Iowa papers (on some job search site):

Here are the major papers covering Iowa. The Des Moines Register is THE state newspaper, with statewide readership. The Omaha World Herald is widely read in the western third of the state. The remainder are from Iowa's larger cities, with Ames and Iowa City being the homes of the universities.

1. Des Moines Register   -

2. Omaha World Herald   -   http://www/

3. Ames Tribune   -

4. Cedar Rapids Gazette   -

5. Quad City Times (Davenport)  -

6. Iowa City Press- Citizen   -

7. Sioux City Journal   -

8. Waterloo Courier   -

****** NEW MEXICO ******

New Mexico Newspaper Links - Lists local Newspapers, Radio and TV Station URLs

The Albuquerque Tribune - This has 3 good articles

1) Brief encapsulation of how Gore's lead dissappeared

2) County attorney changes mind and adds in votes that erase Gore's edge

3) Full Story: "Ballots turn up, and Bush leads N.M. by whisker
      But -- wait! -- there are still approximately
      180 votes to be reviewed in the county recount."

The Albuquerque Journal Online

State of New Mexico
Unofficial 2000 General Election Results as of 11/11/2000 at 01:09(mst) with 33 of 33 counties reporting (By Office)

State of New Mexico
(Same as above but presented by County, must click through for details)

****** OREGON ******

Here is a list of Oregon papers.

****** WISCONSIN ******

After wading through info on modest milk price increases and the national slingshot competition, I managed to find some Wisconsin URLs that may interest you. It's probably more exhaustive than discriminating, so you may want to review them to figure out which ones to keep.
