TERRELL The New Mexican ANCHESTER Many of the New Hampshire political veterans who came to hear Gov Bill Richardson on Tues day at a Politics and Eggs breakfast and at the 2005 New Hampshire Latino Summit assume Richardsons trip here this week is a classic testing of the waters They have no doubt the New Mex ico Democrats grueling schedule of speeches interviews fundraisers and private meetings

Hampshire traditional site of the nations earliest presidential pri mary I havent rilled anything On other occasions he joked about presidential ambitions He said he is too busy with local issues to run for president Like the new snowmobile trail in Dixville he quipped referring to a New Hampshire state park Its an election starts so early that most average citizens here people who work in stores

a long way to go to win the New Hampshire primary In April pollsters read a list of potential Democratic candidates and asked 178 vot ers which ones they would support if the election were held now
