Looks like King Bill was outmaneuvered by The Governator.

Tesla used New Mexico as a "wedge" to drive up Cali's concessions. Kinda like when a free agent in baseball has his agent start negotiating with the Yankees...it forces other teams to up the ante, or drop out.

" 'This decision by Tesla is not surprising given the recent instability of its management,'(New Mexico Economic Development Secretary Fred) Mondragon said."

Hey Freddie....the "recent instability of its management" quote sounds like cheap-shot sour grapes from a poor loser. When you play in the Big Leagues, act like a professional, not like some smarmy, whiny boy.
