Richardson "Support" From the Right
It might not be support, per se, but Amy Proctor knows a highly-qualified Democratic presidential nominee when she sees one.
And who is Amy Proctor, you ask? Check out her bio from her blog.
Richardson is easily the most qualified of the democrats in the field. He has served as a Governor of a border state, has extensive foreign policy experience as Ambassador to the United Nations in the Clinton administration, and has served in many high-level federal positions including a tour as a Cabinet member as Secretary of Energy.
Richardson is also Hispanic, and can potentially attract the burgeoning Latin/Hispanic vote.
Richardson presents far more problems for the Republican Party than either Senator Hillary Clinton or Barak Obama, democrat Senator for Illinois.
However, if the democrats succeed in nominating Richardson, he is almost certain to become the 44th President of the United States. [emphasis mine]
Amy Proctor is a 39 year old Christian Republican woman born and raised in northeastern USA. She married her husband in 1988 and they have 4 wonderful children.She's not your typical supporter of Democrats, but if people like Amy can recognize that Bill Richardson has all of the qualities necessary to become President of the United States, then he should be able to pick up a significant amount of the Independent and swing vote in a general election. We last saw that when Governor Richardson picked up almost 69% of the vote in his re-election in November. Maybe Amy can start a "Conservatives for Richardson" blog.
Amy and her family are devout Catholics. They are very involved in ministry in the Church and also support the Christian Churches in Iraq. Amy & Johnny have raised nearly $15,000+ for the Church in Iraq through designated offerings at Ft. Bragg, NC and Ft. Campbell, KY and other means. They also assist the Church in Iraq through charitable giving from private donors.
Amy counterprotests weekly at anti-war vigils and events, supporting the war on terror and standing against the anti-war movement. She (and other Army wives) have counterprotested so-called Peace Groups at a Cindy Sheehan event, outside of Veterans Hospitals and military posts.
