2nd Quarter Countdown

The decisions you make in the next few hours can truly influence who wins the White House in 2008.

We've got only a few hours before the crucial second quarter FEC fundraising deadline. Can you help keep our momentum alive by making a contribution now?


If you've been waiting to see if this campaign is going to take off, now is the time to act. Right now is when your contribution can make the biggest difference.

Governor Richardson's poll numbers are skyrocketing. Now is the time to capitalize on this momentum with a fundraising haul that will really make the media sit up and pay attention. If we put enough $25 and $50 donations together before tonight's midnight fundraising deadline, we can shake up this entire race.

The clock is ticking -- we need your help now to meet our goal and keep the momentum going.

Please Give Now

The end of the fundraising quarter is tomorrow. Let's give Richardson a strong showing! Click on the ActBlue donation button on the top left corner of this blog to give a donation to Richardson's campaign. Any amount will help.

I also want to mention some of the highlights from last night's debate. The Governor did a great job in this first really fair debate (all candidates were given equal time). One of my favorite comments was, "This is the first time we've talked about education at any debate. The first thing you hear is -- how are we going to pay for it? No one asks how we're going to pay for the war." This is so true with any domestic program. People gripe and worry about the cost. But when it comes to a war, we are, for the most part, silent in regard to the cost. However, social programs such as education are investments which really will pay off in the long run. War rarely does.

Richardson on Iran

So, here is another example of how Richardson thinks practically and diplomatically in regard to our foreign affairs. Earlier today, he was asked about Iran. Instead of the response given by the Republican candidates (which is to use nuclear weapons to kill Iran into submission), Richardson has a thoughtful approach. He said he will reach out to the country's moderates (of whom there are many). He would talk to moderate clerics, to students, to businesses and others to negotiate halting the country's nuclear development. What a smart guy.

Sorry for the disappearance

Well, I went away for quite a while. Life intervened and I have been busy doing other things. Bill Richardson, however, has been busy running for office. And he is working harder than anyone out there. To prove it, his poll numbers keep climbing. The more folks know who he is, the more they like him. As I've said before, he has the experience to do the job well. He knows what diplomacy means and can get things done.

Now, if only I can get things done...
