NPR reported on All Things Considered on Sunday that New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson had made an endorsement. That was incorrect. The former Democratic presidential hopeful has not endorsed a candidate.

When asked about an endorsement on CNN Monday morning, Richardson said, "I'm not ready yet. I have extremely high regard for both candidates." He acknowledged that lately he has been talking on the phone "quite a bit" with Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
