A new Research 2000 poll conducted for KCCI in Iowa shows Edwards still leading with 27%, followed by Clinton at 22% and Obama at 16%.
Also breaking double-digits, Bill Richardson at 11%.
In May, Research 2000 had Clinton in the lead with 28%, followed by Edwards at 26% and Obama at 22%, with Richardson at 7%. So only Edwards and Richardson saw their numbers go up (though Edwards' inch up was statistically insignificant). Of significance, both Clinton and Obama went down.

I apologize for not posting much of late...as many of you know, I'm the Colorado Grassroots Director for our campaign and that keeps me incredibly busy....I'm also working on a screenplay for an Academy Award winning actress, which is also intensely time consuming. So - I apologize for not posting this sooner, as I know this is time sensitive, but this has been an incredibly hectic week for me.
The CNN/YouTube Democratic Presidential Debate will be held in Charleston, South Carolina on Monday. If you have the equipment and capacity to record a video of yourself for the web, you can record and submit a question for Governor Richardson for the debate! YouTube has said that they have not received as many questions as they'd hoped for -- so if you would like to submit a video question, now is the time!
You can go to www.youtube.com/debates to submit your question! Sunday is the deadline for submitting questions!
Thank you for your continued support of Governor Richardson and our campaign to bring hope and promise back to America!
Together, we're going to change this country!

I have a new volunteer opportunity to offer:
I'm assembling a Bloggers for Bill program - an Action/Internet Outreach Team.
By joining this important team, you would be agreeing to frequently post pro-Richardson messages on Colorado political blogs as well as national political blogs. You would also frequently write letters to your local newspapers (and national publications such as USA Today, Newsweek, Time, US News & World Report, etc.). Additionally, you would be encouraged to call in to radio stations to help spread the good news about Governor Richardson's candidacy. Your goal, with each of these efforts, would be to positively talk-up the Governor, his ideas, policies, experience, etc -- as well as why you support him and feel that he is the right - and best - leadership choice for our country.
We will work on assembling a draft for you to use in these communications (such as when you send in LTE's) -- but it will also be important for you to add your own personal intonations to the letters, as we want these communications to come from your heart and not all sound exactly the same to the newspapers when they read them....I don't want them to think that we're just generating mass, non-personal mailings. ;) One of the most awesome things about our campaign is the great heart and soul commitment, belief, dedication, and support of our volunteers: YOU.
This is an important and impactful way for you to volunteer your time to help Governor Richardson's candidacy.
If you would like to be added to our Action Team and Colorado Bloggers for Bill, please e-mail me (Michelle@RichardsonBringsHope.com) and I'll put you on the list!
Thank you so much for your continued support!
Together, we're going to change America!

On Independence Day, I'm Grateful
By Governor Bill Richardson
Today as we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of our great nation we remember the sacrifice of those who fought for freedom in 1776, and those who have fought to preserve that freedom ever since. There are approximately 150,000 brave American men and women serving in Iraq, more than 24,000 in Afghanistan, and tens of thousands more serving around the world. Each of us owes all of them a tremendous debt of gratitude.
More than 3,987 American troops have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. They died serving their country, and they are heroes. My wife Barbara and I send our thoughts and our prayers to the families and loved ones of those who have fallen, and we ask all of you to remember and honor them, and never forget what they have sacrificed on behalf of this nation.
This is a day not for partisan politics, but for grateful remembrance and joyous celebration. A day of optimism and hope. A day to remember that we live in the greatest nation on earth, where our best days are still ahead of us. A day to celebrate our freedom, but also to remember that freedom comes at a cost.
God bless you, and God Bless the United States of America.

GREENVILLE, New Hampshire (CNN) — How do you make noise as a second-tier candidate for president in a crowded field? Bang a pot!
That’s what Democratic hopeful Bill Richardson did in New Hampshire — a state he currently has to himself among his Democratic opponents — at midnight Tuesday to ring in the July 4th holiday.
Richardson marched and hammed it up with Greenville residents in their annual Pots and Pans Parade.
The parade dates back to World War I, involving pots and wooden spoons and a lot of noise to mark the holiday at midnight. There was plenty of music free of cooking utensils too — and the New Mexico governor was spotted dancing to Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA”.
Richardson is spending the Fourth of July marching in parades and visiting with voters around the early-voting state.
