Century of the Common Iowan: Will Bill Richardson Run for Senate?

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

Yesterday, Republican Pete Domenici announced he was retiring and
would not seek reelection to the US Senate. There is speculation that
Gov. Bill Richardson will drop out of the presidential race and run
for Senate. I could see why Richardson would not want to run for
Senate. First, he is the sitting Governor of New Mexico until 2010.
Second, he has been moving up in the presidential race. Third, he has
a strong chance to be a Vice President candidate or be named to a top
cabinet position such as Secretary of State. However, if Richardson
ran for Senate, he would be a strong favorite to win the seat and give
Democrats a pick up opportunity in the Senate.
