Looks like the governor has other plans for Saturday morning. This just in from the Obama campaign:

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Tomorrow morning New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson will open the second day of Hispanic Camp Obama. He will speak to Hispanic community leaders, activist and volunteers from across New Mexico

Richardson is supposed to speak at 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time. That's in Albuquerque, not Springfield.
