Terechu recently reminded my of New Mexico governor Bill Richardson's Asturian ancestry. His mother was born in Villaviciosa, his father in Boston.

Hace poco Terechu me recordó que Bill Richardson, gobernador de Nuevo México, es descendientes de asturianos. Su madre nació en Villaviciosa y su padre en Boston.

He loves Snickers Bars. Down here we call him Snickers Bill. That's kin to me! I like Snickers too.....
His maternal grandfather is Asturian. His mother is first generation Mexican.
In the Wiki reference it states his father was raised in Boston, but actually born in Nicaragua, right?

If loving Snickers is enough to make one family, leave a seat open for me at the dinner table. Cool
