Richardson: It's about votes, not money

Watch Richardson weigh in on the fundraising frenzy.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- From New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson's perspective, it is going to take more than strong fundraising to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

"I don't care about money being raised by other candidates," Richardson told reporters Wednesday at a stop in New Hampshire. "Money isn't going to vote, voters are going vote."

Richardson raised a respectable $6 million in the first three months of 2007, although it paled in comparison to several of his opponents. Richardson said that qualifications and a good plan for the country should make a difference to voters. He also emphasized his foreign policy credentials as an asset and is set to lead a bipartisan delegation to North Korea in mid-April.
