Washington (AP) James Carville is refusing to apologize for comparing New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson to Judas for endorsing Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton.

Carville, an adviser to Clinton's campaign, made the comparison to the New York Times, calling Richardson's decision an “act of betrayal” that came during holy week.

Carville said the timing of his remark seemed appropriate since Richardson's endorsement of Obama over Clinton for the democratic presidential nomination came around the anniversary of Judas selling out Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

Richardson served as U.N. ambassador and secretary of energy during the Clinton administration.

Richardson told “Fox News Sunday” that he wouldn't respond by getting “in the gutter like that.”

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said he didn't agree with Carville's comment.
