SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is among more than 30 governors to receive a letter from an anti-government group saying they will be removed from office if they don't leave their elective positions within three days.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Peter Olson said Friday that Richardson got a letter from the group called the Guardians of the Free Republics.

Olson said the governor's security detail is aware of the letter and is being cautious.

However, Olson declined to say whether additional security steps have been taken. The administration has a policy of not disclosing information about Richardson's security.
