Watch Bill Richardson discuss his presidential campaign.

Watch Bill Richardson discuss his presidential campaign.

(CNN) – Democratic presidential hopeful Bill Richardson sought to lower expectations Tuesday as New Hampshire primary voters headed to the polls.

Just a few days after he told reporters he was looking for a third-place finish in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary, the New Mexico governor told CNN’s Heidi Collins that “a respectable fourth” would also be a kind of victory for his underdog campaign. No matter where he finishes, Richardson is looking forward to Nevada’s caucuses, and to a number of western states that hold their primaries on February 5.

Watch Richardson discuss his rivals for the Democratic nomination, why he does not engage in negative campaigning, and whether he’s interested in being a vice presidential candidate.
