Campaigning abroad

The week's news at a glance.

Mexico City

Both Democrats and Republicans are making an unprecedented push to win the support of Americans living abroad, The Washington Post reported this week. In Mexico, home to an estimated 350,000 U.S. expatriates, Diana Kerry recently courted votes for her brother, Democratic contender John Kerry. George P. Bush, the president’s nephew, may soon follow, and the GOP is about to launch an ad blitz in foreign newspapers. Expatriates are as divided as the electorate back home, and record numbers are registering to vote, said Connie Helque of the Association of Americans Resident Overseas in Paris. “People are coming in who haven’t voted in decades,” she said.
