Things are obviously not peaches and cream between Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and her Republican Lt. Gov. John Sanchez.
You’ll recall that following their election last November, the then governor-elect trundled into Santa Fe to begin the process of setting up her incoming administration.
Simultaneously, she cut the lieutenant governor-elect out of that process by dispatching him on a jaunt around the state to find out what business folks thought needed to be done to improve the state’s economy.
It smelled fishy at the time and it still does.
Think upon it. Here were two politicos, Martinez and Sanchez, who had just spent months campaigning in every nook and cranny of New Mexico, talking to anyone they could corral, yet the newly elected governor still didn’t know what the state’s businessmen and women were thinking?
A person would have to be denser than those waves of smoke that billowed out of Arizona and over New Mexico in recent days to buy that piece of nonsense.
Martinez wanted Sanchez out of town and out of the way.
Whereupon she and Heather Wilson, a former Republican congresswoman who became her transition chief, joined forces to fashion the outlines of a Martinez administration.
