Gov. Bill Richardson left for North Korea this morning, just his latest trip out of New Mexico. My story in today's New Mexican showed that as of Friday he's been out of state at least 38 days so far this year. (Friday was day 96 of 2207.)

I say "at least," because it is the Richardson campaign's policy not to publicize out-of-state events, such as private fundraisers, that are not open to the public.

Richardson is scheduled to return to New Mexico from the North Korean trip on Friday. That means, assuming he doesn't have another trip planned for next Saturday, that he will have been out of New Mexico on all but four days days of the first two weeks of April.
