Governor Richardson has an interesting campaign strategy (subscription) for winning re-election:
Richardson is kicking off his [national] book tour on the heels of launching his bid Wednesday for re-election as governor in 2006. His new radio and television ads feature a pair of folksy-talking cowboys touting Richardson-backed tax cuts.
Sit up an take notice folks. He launches a campaign that says, “Please re-elect me,” and follows that up with “Now, let me out of here.” Why would we re-elect a Governor who so badly wants to get out of New Mexico? Maybe, it’s for the great ideas (subscription) coming out of the administration on how to spend the taxpayer’s money.
