Live from Los Angeles

I'm not in Los Angeles, but Joaquin Guerra is and he just posted a blog entry at the campaign website.

In less than an hour, Governor Bill Richardson will announce that he is officially running for President of the United States of America. I'm in Downtown Los Angeles at the historic Biltmore Hotel, where the Governor will make his announcement. By his side will be his wife, the First Lady of New Mexico, Barbara Richardson, and many of the Governor's long time supporters from New Mexico and California.

Like the momentum that we've built on the campaign, the excitement is building here in the Gold Room. The room is filling up and people are talking about the Governor's poll numbers, he's up 10 points in Iowa and New Hampshire. They're talking about his latest ads which are a hit, not just in Iowa and New Hampshire, but on You Tube where they've been viewed more that 100 Thousand times.

And they're talking about the fact that the Governor is the only candidate that is calling for getting our troops out of Iraq this year and leaving noresidual US forces in Iraq. Learn more about the Governor'splan to de-authorize the war and withdraw ALL troops by the end of the year, so that we can start redirecting our energy toward what matters most for Americans: improving education, expanding access to quality health care, and addressing the REAL security threats like the Taliban, nuclear proliferation, and global warming.

Tune in to CNN, which is carrying the Governor's announcement live in just a few minutes.
