Associated Press - February 6, 2008 9:05 PM ETWell good questions can be asked where was Big Bill when $'s were being raised for the Caucus. No doubt he was off running for President.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Governor Richardson says he's frustrated with state Democratic Party Chairman Brian Colon after reports of long lines and other problems at polling sites in the state party's presidential caucus.
It was Richardson who in 2003 originally conceived of holding an early caucus in New Mexico, and the state's first one was in 2004.
Today, the governor raised the possibility that state Democrats should rethink whether to keep the early nominating contest four years from now.
Richardson said he was deeply disturbed by reports of long lines at polling places and other problems. Some polling sites ran out of ballots and had to rush to make copies.
He says he expressed his frustration to Colon.
Colon says he hasn't met with nor talked to Richardson.
Earlier today, Colon took full responsibility for problems and apologized for miscalculating.
Well the World ain't fair and if Brian Colon didn't know it before he's learning it now -
