Breaking News: Richardson Withdraws Name for Consideration in Obama Cabinet

Breaking News, Sunday, January 4: NBC's Andrea Mitchell has broken the news that Governor Bill Richardson has withdrawn his name for consideration as Secretary of Commerce in President-elect Barack Obama's cabinet.

Richardson's fate in the cabinet has been the subject of some speculation in recent days, since the announcement by the U.S. Attorney's office in Albuquerque that a Grand Jury was investigating the transfer of approximately $100,000 from CDR, a firm that was awarded business with the state, to two Political Action Committees controlled by the Governor.

Gov Richarson should step down for the sake of the citizens of NM. How does it look for us in the southern Valley now, all along we said he was not helping us fix our roads and schools.
