Bill Richardson in Silver City
Gov. Bill Richardson stopped by Penny Park this afternoon for a campaign rally with local Democratic candidates and area supporters.

Richardson urged support for the Democratic ticket, including Jeff Bingaman, James Lewis, Mary Herrera and Hector Balderas. He also highlighted Gary King, Jim Baca and Sandy Jones as candidates in tight, important races.

He then spoke about his goals for a second term as governor. Richardson said three priorities will be a statewide minimum wage increase, a push for greater energy independence and a focus on water issues. Speaking of water, here’s Richardson speaking with Allyson Siwik, executive director of the Gila Resources Information Project:
