Sarkozy in Spain
UMP candidate Nicolas Sarkozy went to Spain today, and will be speaking with at least 1400 of the 120,000 strong French expat community there. He will also meet Socialist President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, and will attend a memorial for the 2004 Madrid train bombings.
In other Sarkozy news, the BBC is reporting that Sarkozy may allow wine advertisements on TV and at the movies, saying that "Wine cannot be lumped together with tobacco or drugs." Sarkozy himself does not drink, but he did indulge in some wine tasting at the rally. The wine industry in France is huge, with 75,000 jobs, but it has faced stiff competition from new producers across the globe.
