Bill RichardsonJanuary 9, 2008 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
I find this to be, although not surprising, kinda sad ’cause I liked Bill. I realize the pack is eating its own and there can only be one ’cause that’s what happens, but from I heard a lot of positive information the kids over at the local college. I heard them talk quite a bit about Bill Richardson.
But, I guess it’s too late because apparently Bill Richardson is throwing in the towel.
Richardson planned to announce the decision Thursday, according to two people close to the governor with knowledge of the decision. They spoke on a condition of anonymity in advance of the governor’s announcement.
The Richardson campaign would not comment on the governor’s decision, reached after a meeting with his top advisers Wednesday in New Mexico.
Richardson had one of the most wide-ranging resumes of any candidate ever to run for the presidency, bringing experience from his time in Congress,‘s Cabinet, in the New Mexico statehouse as well as his unique role as a freelance diplomat. As a Hispanic, he added to the unprecedented diversity in the Democratic field that also included a black and a woman.
Butand dominated the spotlight in the campaign, and Richardson was never able to become a top-tier contender. He accused his rivals of failing to commit to bring troops home from Iraq soon enough.
It’s that time where the pool gets a little hotter and some folks get out of the water.
And then again, that’s what happens.
