Richardson Attracts 120 Bundlers To Donor Retreat

More

Does NM Gov. Bill Richardson belong to the top tier of Democratic presidential candidates? Or maybe to tier one-and-a-half?

His finance team attracted 120 fundraisers to a donor retreat in Santa Fe, NM this week. There, campaign manager Dave Contarino gave a detailed strategy briefing. He told donors that the campaign employed 200 -- rivaling the size of the Obama and Clinton operations.

Richardson himself stopped by for cocktails. Among the major Democratic financiers in attendance: attorney Bill Titleman, a top Clinton-Gore raiser, and developer Phillip Peckman.

Richardson has raised more than $13M since the beginning of the year. His finance director is Colleen Turrentine. She's assisted by Linnea Dyer and Jennifer Yoacham-Poersch.
