Linkage when I get it:
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson intends to say Sunday that he is taking the first step toward the Democratic presidential nomination, several officials with knowledge of his plans said Friday.
The former congressman, U.N. ambassador and Energy Department secretary is hoping his extensive resume will fuel an insurgent campaign to become the nationâ€™s first Hispanic president. He plans to announce Sunday that he will soon file the papers to create a presidential exploratory committee, the officials said.
