It looks like Bill Richardson has raised about $4.9 million out of New Mexico -- which is extremely impressive considering the amount that, say, Obama has raised out of Illinois ($6.7 million) -- or, put in perspective, Richardson has raised about $2.50 from every person in the entire state. That strikes me as remarkable... is it just a governor thing?
