News Flash: Richardson Bows Out

The Associated Press is reporting tonight that New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is quitting the Democratic race for the presidency.

Richardson, the only Hispanic in the presidential contest, finished fourth in yesterday's New Hampshire primary. He also finished fourth in the Iowa caucuses last week.

According to earlier press reports, Richardson is likely to support Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who, with Sen. Hillary Clinton, is leading the Democratic field.

UPDATE: A Richardson spokesman is now denying the AP report, so maybe Richardson's not out after all.
