New Mexico’s Democratic State Chairman Sam Bregman is a cheeky fellow, so before our gallivanting governor trundled off to Ohio recently for another speaking-cum-fundraising affair, he dispatched a press advisory cautioning that state’s news outfits against buying into the hype being proffered by Ohio Republicans to the effect that Susana Martinez is “a job creator.”
It’s reportedly a stock line for GOP leaders out on the hustings when introducing Gov. Martinez.
This time, however, the “job creator” fiction abruptly came face to face with persuasive evidence that the governor is actually not so hot at the job of “job creation,” a point previously explored in this column.
Barely had the governor returned from Ohio before a new national survey was released, the product of business journalist G. Scott Thomas, who crunched the numbers and nailed down which of the nation’s governors actually deserves the title “job creator.”
Thomas’s research appears in “On Numbers,” an online consortium of business publications called “The Business Journals,” and what he discovered was that where job growth is concerned Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota reigns unchallenged.
