What makes a movie great is not just what you see, but what you hear. Take away the musical score from many films and they'd barely be recognizable. All this week, we'll talk with people who write these scores for the big screen.
The influence of Native American voters
Organizers of a national get-out-the-vote campaign that targeted Native American communities for Election Day are considering their efforts a success.
From Phoenix, KJZZ’s Steve Goldstein has more.
The National Congress of American Indians led the push to get more Native Americans voting. The group is pointing to U.S. Senate races in Montana and North Dakota, as well as a voter identification ballot initiative in Minnesota, where it says the Native American turnout made a difference. The Minnesota voter ID requirement failed.
NCAI Executive Director Jackie Johnson Pata says the best indicator was the fact that President Barack Obama mentioned Native Americans during his victory speech Tuesday night. NCAI officials say Native Americans in New Mexico and Montana were registered to vote at higher rates than any other racial or ethnic group in those states heading into Election Day.
