4. Bill's no advocate. The state was facing a lion of a lawsuit.
Richardson is a political realist. VoterAction New Mexico fielded a lawsuit that has revealed just how terrible New Mexico's voting system is. When the state tried to sign a contract to buy Sequoia Edge DREs, which aren't 2002 certified, VoterAction successfully blocked them in court. The activists in NM have been tigers and Richardson and Co. finally claimed victory in the teeth of dfeat.

It's a great day, but it's not because Richardson is doing what's right because he's an advocate.
