After Breitbart News published video of Former Gov. Richardson saying of Sen. Cruz, ‘I don’t think he should be defined as a hispanic,’ he went on Fox News this afternoon and defended his remarks by claiming he actually said Ted Cruz should not be defined as JUST hispanic. “No, that was a misunderstanding. I said that he shouldn’t be defined as a Hispanic. I’m a Hispanic. I don’t define myself just as a Hispanic….He shouldn’t be defined just as a Hispanic. We’re other things. That’s what I said.”

The Governor’s original remarks appear in the second video: “I’m not a fan. I know he’s sort of the Republican latest flavor … He’s anti-immigration, almost every hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don’t think he should be defined as a hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas, a conservative state.”
