After distant finishes in both the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries, Governor Bill Richardson formally ended his Presidential bid today. Richardson's campaign, while never garnering a lot of official support via the ballot box, added a positive and policy-nuanced layer to the discussion. One of the most experienced candidates, with a cabinet position and a governorship under his belt, he campaigned hard, keeping what became his signature sense of humor during debates and on the trail.
Shortly after his announcement, he appeared on CNN's Situation Room, saying, "I feel I did all I could, so I leave satisfied that I helped shape the process."
He's not endorsing any other candidate presently, saying that he wants to let the primaries shape themselves and for now, focus on being a good governor of New Mexico.
Were you a Bill Richardson supporter? Are you sad to see him go?
