Heather Wilson's Running for U.S. Senate in NM & Richardson Says No

According to unnamed sources quoted in an article today by The Hill, Rep. Heather Wilson will run for Pete Domenici's Senate seat. And so it begins. No doubt Domenici will give her his blessing during his retirement announcement today at 4 PM at St. Mary's School. And according to this report, Wilson will officially announce her Senate bid at 1:30 PM MDT on Friday at her Albuquerque office.

Also, Gov. Bill Richardson says NO again:

“There’s no equivocation. Bill Richardson is running for president, and all the signs are there that he’s going to be president,” said Mike Stratton, a senior adviser to Richardson.
“The only people who are talking about rationales for him to run for the Senate are pundits. Bill Richardson is singularly focused on being a good governor in New Mexico and being the next president of the United States,” he said.

Argh....no Udall?

If there's no Richardson, no Denish & no Udall...we're getting close to Marty being the only choice for Dems.

Yikes.

Unless this Wiviott guy can become something other than just "this Wiviott guy".

Why does Marty keep popping up in my nightmares? I think since Wilson is running for senate, Marty going to pick her house seat off.

But not if I have anyhting to do with it!!!

Marty is NOT a choice as far as I am concerned, we have enough sleaze in Washington, we sure as hell don't need more of that crap. Blue Dogs, Dino's and DLC supporters are NOT needed or wanted!

hey scot:
Don Wiviott has been making himself known.
He is an excellent candidate. Too bad people do not take the slightest initiative to come to a location where he is speaking and taking questions. Do you expect him to just materialize in your living room? Oh yea I guess all us Americans do...it is called TV ads.

Even KNME The Line Gene Grant and his panelists have no interest in finding out who this Don Wiviott guy is.
Keep stuck in the same old rut scot and blame the good candidate. We have a chance for change now but what I see is the average american is too lazy.
