The People vs. The Privileged or New Mexico vs. Hollywood

Last week, Governor Richardson held a fundraiser in New Mexico that netted $2 million.

Hollywood bigwigs hosted a fundraiser earlier in the week for Senator Barack Obama that only got him $1 million.

With all due respect for the good people of New Mexico, that state isn't known for its star power. So it's quite an accomplishment to hold a fundraiser and in one night, out-raise the guy who everyone is treating like a rock star and who had his own fundraiser with celebrities in attendance.

Give round one to the people of New Mexico over the Hollywood elite.
