Another Democrat VIP is stumping through the Commonwealth--New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.
Richardson is a former Democratic candidate vying for the White House. Now, he's rallying crowds for his former rival.

Bill Richardson, (D) New Mexico.
A couple hundred Obama supporters showed up to the town hall.
