Mostly True

New Mexico moved "up to" sixth in the nation in job growth.

Bill Richardson on Thursday, May 10th, 2007 in a TV Ad.

Yes, but note the fine print

Richardson is correct, but doesn't mention the fine print.

In touting his economic record as New Mexico's governor, Richardson's campaign produced a TV ad noting the pace of the state's job growth while he's been in office. Although the state was ranked sixth in August 2006 for job growth, it most recently ranked 15th. A more accurate statement would be to say that the state "ranked as high as sixth in the nation."
