Richardson Campaign Denies Deal Rumors

Tom Reynolds, a spokesman for Bill Richardson, denies reports that his precinct captains will urge non-viable Richardson caucusers to choose Sen. Barack Obama second.

Regarding the Richardson/Obama rumor, there is no deal. We will be viable in nearly every precinct in Iowa so this issue is moot. Iowans are independent and will make up their own minds about who to support. Our instructions to our precinct captains are to win delegates. Just like every other campaign is trying to do.
