Richardson Campaigning In Nevada

Governor Richardson returned to Nevada this week to bolster his Western credentials and make it difficult for other candidates to win the state. And with the schedule he followed, he left no doubt that he's doing his best to work harder than all of the other candidates.

Richardson was the featured speaker Sunday at the Carson City Democrats' Jefferson-Jackson Dinner Sunday and was up at 6 a.m. Monday, working out at a local health club. By 8 a.m., he was taping a segment of the Nevada Newsmakers television program.


At 8:30 a.m., he was at Comma Coffee, making a pilgrimage to the capital city's in-spot for candidates running for office. He was witty, getting laughs with some ad-lib.


He met leaders of the AFL-CIO and at 11 a.m. was at Carson High School, praising students for raising $825 to help with relief efforts in Darfur.


At noon, Richard was in a private session with the Democratic caucus at the Legislature.

At 1 p.m., Richardson was back at the Comma Coffee meeting with Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

He caught a 2:30 plane from Reno to Las Vegas for appearances Monday night and this morning.

His three day-stop in Nevada ended an 11-day trip from Washington D.C., to South Carolina, California and Nevada.

When it comes down to it, retail politics is what Bill Richardson does best: reaching out and connecting with people.
