Legislative Endorsement Update: Richardson Now On The Board

Legislative Endorsement Update: Richardson Now On The Board

Bill Richardson scores his first legislative endorsement, as State Rep. Marcella Frevert of Palo Alto County looks over the resume and hires the governor.  The endorsement is part of a recent flurry of activity on the Democratic side:

  • Joe Biden has the backing of Rep. Mary Gaskill of Ottumwa.
  • Hillary Clinton picked up two Cedar Rapids legislators, Sen. Rob Hogg and Rep. Todd Taylor.
  • John Edwards got the endorsement of Rep. Bob Kressig of Black Hawk County.
  • Rep. Brian Quirk of Chickasaw County is with Barack Obama.

    Time for an updated chart of donkeys:



    The standout stat from this chart remains Joe Biden's high levels of legislative support -- actually leading on the House side, and only one donkey behind Obama --- despite his low standing in the polls.

    There's less than no activity on the Republican side, as two names drop off the committed chart with Sam Brownback's departure from the race.  (They didn't follow Brownback's lead and endorse John McCain).
