I still haven’t heard from Bill Richardson’s campaign regarding my debate challenge. Yes, I sent them a note. I emailed my post over to campaign headquarters, and didn’t even get the courtesy of a reply. In all fairness, the Richardson staff is really not all that interested in what is going on in New Mexico:
Former New Mexico Economic Development Department spokeswoman Katie Roberts left her job last week and moved to
, where she started work Monday with the South Carolina Democrats. South Carolina
When the Governor bailed on any debates for New Mexico, he sent a clear message that this state just really isn’t a top priority anymore in his political career. South Carolina, that’s where the action is.
[South Carolina party spokeman] Norton told the Journal he understood that Roberts was in the state at the request of
. Richardson ‘s campaign manager, Amanda Cooper, didn’t give a yes or no answer but gave the same answer she’ll give until at least after Nov. 7: Richardson
“The governor has not made any decision as to whether he is going to do that or not,”Cooper told the Journal about a possible presidential run. “The governor is running for re-election.”
Really, Ms. Cooper? Last I checked the Governor is only in the state on an infrequent basis. He seems to spend a whole lot of his time campaigning on the East Coast, so unless he figured out a way to get those people to vote in New Mexico, I would say that he is doing everything but running for re-election.
