SANTA FE — New Mexico’s gubernatorial contest has become Susana Martinez’s race to lose. Lt. Gov. Diane Denish can still win it but unless Martinez stumbles over a pile of kryptonite, she’s the favorite.
Yes, I said kryptonite. I realize that is Superman’s nemesis but I can’t recall what weakens Wonder Woman. And Wonder Woman is what I am christening Susana Martinez.
Why? Because she’s faster than light, bulletproof and invisible. During the Republican primary election campaign she seemed to be in all places at once, lining up delegates in every county while still being district attorney out of her Las Cruces office.
All that time, former state GOP chairman Allen Weh was publicizing his travels to every county to line up delegates.
But when the state party convention came along, Martinez swamped Weh and her three other opponents, garnering as many delegate votes as the rest of her opponents combined.
It was the same story in the June primary as it had been at the GOP convention in March.
Martinez again licked the field with one arm tied behind her. The day after her primary election victory, Martinez took on the mighty lieutenant governor and her $2 million bankroll.
