Richardson appeared on ABC's This week and was asked about the Senator from Texas
Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Sunday that Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, whose father was a Cuban immigrant, should not be "defined as a Hispanic" because of his stance on immigration legislation. 

Richardson, a former Democratic presidential candidate who also is Hispanic, criticized the freshman Texas senator during the web portion of the ABC "This Week" program on Sunday. 
Asked for his thoughts on Cruz, Richardson said, "I'm not a fan." 

"I know he's sort of the Republican latest flavor. He's articulate. He seems to be charismatic, but I don't like his politics," Richardson said. He alleged that Cruz adds a "measure of incivility in the political process," though he is a "force" in the GOP. 

Richardson was then asked if Cruz represents most Hispanics with his political views. Richardson said, "No, he's anti-immigration."
On the other hand Democratic Strategist James Carville said on the same show
