After the governor went to New Jersey to campaign with her counterpart, we saw a lot of media gushing over the possible Republican dream team of two moderates — Chris Christie and Susana Martinez.
Here in New Mexico, we wondered about this newly minted moderate and bipartisan governor. Is this the same Susana who ran blistering, below-the-belt attack ads against Democrats in 2012? The same Susana who has spent far more time with her dukes up than her hand outstretched toward legislative Dems? The same Susana who… You get the drift.
When I’ve asked Democratic lawmakers during the session if they’ve seen the governor, most haven’t. One said she had: “She basically told us what she wants us to do.”
Apparently the omniscient national pundits don’t know that, but now they know about New Mexico’s Karl Rove.
A Nov. 23 National Journal story about Martinez and her ever present political consultant, Jay McCleskey, exploded into the political heavens, bringing hope and campaign fodder to the five Democratic candidates for governor and slowing the trajectory of Martinez’s national star.
The story was pretty much old news here, but it dangled a few revelations.
