After weeks of speculation, Gov. Bill Richardson is endorsing Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president. His announcement early this morning stuns many constituents because Richardson is a longtime friend of former President Bill Clinton and wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is in a bitter battle with Obama for the White House.Clinton and Obama have actively sought Richardson’s endorsement since he dropped out of the presidential race in January. Clinton has garnered a majority of Hispanic votes in primaries and caucuses, according to exit polls. She won New Mexico’s caucus last month with a nearly 2-to-1 advantage among Hispanics.
