I Love My Boss!

Democrat Bill Richardson, the lone sitting governor in the 2008 presidential race, hasn't had to look far for support for his presidential campaign. In the first six months of the campaign, he has collected 274 contributions totaling more than $236,000 from state employees currently working for him, his Federal Election Commission reports show.

The outpouring of support ranges from maximum $2,300 primary donations from Richardson's lieutenant governor, Diane Denish, and some state Cabinet secretaries to $150 from Alfred Newman, who identified himself as a disability adjudicator for the state of New Mexico when he gave his donation June 29.

"The campaign is very grateful and humble to have the support of state employees," Richardson spokesman Pahl Shipley said. "It is a great show of support from the people who get the work done every day for this state."
