Gov. Bill Richardson

Sources tell me that the March 18th event for presidential candidate New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson will be sponsored by Robert Hefner, Mark Schwartz, Mike Lawter, Tim Reese, and Fred Harris.

I met Richardson at the DNC Winter meeting earlier this month and was very impressed by his speech which outlined his accomplishments as New Mexico Governor. One thing that he said that really intrigued me was that as Governor he improved teachers' salaries from 47th in the nation to 27th in the nation.

I told all who asked that for me, Richardson was the "break away" speaker of the weekend --- someone to listen to and watch, a definite contender.
