Bill Richardson １１
I'm sorry I didn't get to you sooner.
We left Iowa at 11 last night and got into New Hampshire at 3 this morning. I've been doing events all day and I have to head out in a few minutes for a television interview.
While it might not look like it from the headlines, we accomplished a lot in Iowa. And I have you to thank for that, oooo.
Your trust was not only inspirational, it gave us the resources to run a very competitive campaign.
We mobilized nearly 20,000 voters and took 7% of the caucus-goers in the first round. But given the unique nature of the Iowa caucus process and the unexpectedly large turnout, we weren't able to hold onto all of those votes into the final round.
As I'm sure you've heard by now, I am not giving up. And I don't want you to, either.
If we learned anything in Iowa, it's that this race is still very fluid. And our folks in New Hampshire tell us that a lot of voters there are re-thinking their positions in light of what happened last night.
Suddenly, "inevitable" doesn't seem so inevitable anymore.
Right now I'm focused on tomorrow night's debate. And shoot, the way I look at it, I made the "Final Four"!
I'll be in touch,
