Richardson visits Nevada

Governor Richardson is in Nevada this weekend.

From the Nevada Appeal:

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is wasting no time visiting this nearby Western state in his fledgling bid for the presidency.
On Saturday, the "blue" candidate is headed for a very "red" Douglas County.Richardson will join fellow Democrat retired Gen. Wesley Clark for keynote speaking duties at the Turn Nevada Blue dinner, a fundraiser for the Douglas County Democratic Central Committee.
Nevada's caucus, one year from Friday - Jan. 19, 2008 - is sandwiched between the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary, which have traditionally kicked off the presidential-nominating contests.
The new schedule is expected to bring intense attention to Nevada as candidates seek to pick up early wins.
"It's the first time the West has gotten any kind of attention. And Nevada happens to be a red state, and we're trying to turn it blue," said Bud Orange, co-chairman of the Douglas County Democratic Central Committee and second vice-chairman of the Nevada State Democratic Party. "And we got him in Douglas County."
Richardson is set to make his first campaign swing through Northern Nevada on Saturday, one week after joining the burgeoning field of Democratic presidential hopefuls.
