Give ’em Hell Governor Martinez!

Posted January 1st, 2011 by Iron Mike

A tough but polite Lady was sworn in as the new Governor of New Mexico at midnight.  Bill Richardson can go write another book, or pound sand.  Susana Martinez, a Republican from Las Cruses takes the helm.  She overcame a brutally ugly smear campaign mounted by the Democratic Governors Association.  

They tried to link her with everybody from Bush to Blago.  Race also played an issue there, opponents tried to call her a “Tijana” – meaning a Mexican who tries to be a white Texan.  In parts of our southwest that is a cutting slur.

Suzana beat Bill Richardson’s Lt Gov Diane Denish who had a $1 Million war chest.  Suzana is a three-term District Attorney – running each time as a Republican.

I can’t help wondering if the Obama/Holder lawsuit against neighboring Arizona was a factor in the minds of New Mexico voters on November 2nd.   Another factor may have been the $423 Million state deficit that the Richardson/Denish team ran up.  

Anyway, Suzana won 53% / 46%, and we have another solid republican governor!  Whee!

Give ’em Hell Suzana, – give ’em HELL!
