Sarah Palin’s blessing may have raised Martinez from relative obscurity within New Mexico politics, but the association with Palin these days threatens to keep her there instead of elevating her to the national stage…

When Time magazine last year cited Martinez as of one of the 100 most influential people in the world, it was none other than Karl Rove who penned the magazine’s blurb on the “reform-minded conservative Republican.” …

Over the last year, independent studies have ranked New Mexico next-to-last in job creation and 50th in childhood hunger, overall child welfare and poverty rate…

And when it comes time for the 2016 Republican presidential nominee to consider potential running mates, Martinez is likely to be a strong contender — if not the consensus early favorite — to become the second female Republican vice-presidential nominee in the nation’s history…

Despite the attention that these issues have received among Santa Fe politicos, the accusations of bullying and ethical breaches have not resonated deeply with either New Mexico voters or national Republican operatives, who remain unconvinced that Martinez will be tarnished by them…

One thought on “#GiveItToMe!

  1. Uh oh. Here we go again. Female. Minority! Never mind that NM is a haven for criminals, because the elected officials are all criminals themselves. Ms. Screaming Mimi can flaunt her diamonds in the face of Nuevo Mejicanos, knowing that her supporters will be the other fat cats with deep pockets. I’m sure she’ll promise the Tribal Councils the moon and stars, and probably give them a few of them too, since the Mescalero enterprises bring plenty of $$$$$ into the state by way of tourists spending their money around while they’re playing at the casinos, track, etc.

    Yep, I was a Nueva Mejicana long before these things came to pass. The same kind of dynamic–a handful of “haves” lording it over the rest of everybody else. But at that time the state was so sparsely populated, mainly with the various tribes, that there was nothing to plunder. Returning last summer I had an acute grief attack at what my once lovely state has turned into.
