Richardson will decide on '08 bid sometime 'this month'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- New Mexico Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson told CNN Monday he will decide on a 2008 presidential run by the end of the month.

"Well I am going to make a decision this month, as I have always said Wolf, whether I am going to run or not," Richardson told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on 'The Situation Room."

When pressed for a more specific timetable, Richardson said he wanted to move beyond his State of the State address Tuesday before addressing the presidential question.

The New Mexico governor also indicated he would appear at the country's first presidential debate co-hosted by CNN, New Hampshire's WMUR-TV and the New Hampshire Union Leader, if he decides to seek the presidency.

"If I make the decision to run of course I will be there," Richardson said.
