When Chris Christie was re-elected governor of New Jersey last year, news reports mentioned that he received a majority of Hispanic votes, a fact considered noteworthy for a Republican in that state. Gov. Susana Martinez had spent time in New Jersey campaigning for him. Even if the national pundits didn’t say so, there was an implication that Martinez’s presence contributed to his victory.
A couple of months ago, I happened to see a TV interview with Rick Perry, outgoing governor of Texas. Perry said he will be campaigning for the Republican candidate who is running to succeed him. And, he added gratuitously, he’ll be campaigning for Martinez in New Mexico.
The governor of Texas coming here to campaign? The governor who ran for president and couldn’t remember which cabinet departments he wanted to eliminate? That’s wild, I thought. My northern New Mexico bias surfaced momentarily as I speculated that this loudmouth Texan might be a nice gift to Gary King.
I apologize. Perry is probably popular in parts of New Mexico. And maybe he is planning to raise money for Martinez in Texas.
