State roundup: NM makes national history

-A A +A

Voters elect first Hispanic female governor in the state

Gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez rode the Republican tidal wave of victory into office in Tuesday’s general election with a solid 53.4 percent of the vote. Two-term Lt. Gov. Diane Denish lost her bid for governor, pulling just 46.3 percent in this year’s overall trend to replace Democratic incumbents at the local, state and national level.
“Together we did all that we could to win this election … we came up short, but I hold my head up high…and you should, too,” Denish told supporters in her concession speech.
Martinez, 51, is a prosecutor from Las Cruces who made departing Gov. Bill Richardson a central figure in her campaign. She labeled Denish as “more of the same” as Richardson’s popularity has tanked amid high unemployment, rising state budget deficits, and federal investigations into allegations of pay-to-play contracts.
“Working together we will create jobs, get our books in order…tonight we have taken a significant step in turning New Mexico around for all of us,” Martinez said.
