Liveblogging: Bill Richardson for President Announcement

In just a few minutes, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, Bill Richardson is officially announcing his intention to run for President. Governor Richardson is surrounded by friends and long-time supporters from New Mexico and California for the announcement.

First Lady Barbara Richardson has just introduced Governor Bill Richardson. He's thanking 3 women who have spoken today: LA County Supervisor Gloria Molina, Linda Lynch and his wife, Barbara.

He's asking a question of Lt. Governor Diane Denish, wondering who is minding the store since both of them are in Los Angeles.

He recognized that he was born in California and says he will win the primary. Says he will make history, and speaking some Spanish says he will be the first Latino President of the United States.

He says he is running for President because this nation needs a leader who has a track record and can bring people together.

Unfortunately, CNN cut away, MSNBC isn't covering the speech and Faux News had it but cut away to violence in Lebanon.

Stay tuned, we'll have the video and text of the announcement speech as soon as we get it.
