Last month, we talked about Gov. Susana Martinez being selected by President Barack Obama as one of four United States political leaders to represent the U.S. at the new Pope's installation activities. We also talked about her seeming to get her way with the Democratic Legislature this year.
Now the talk is about the governor being selected by Time magazine as one of the world's 100 most influential leaders.
I'm surprised at there was so little chatter about it in the media, or from the Governor's Office. Let's hope she uses that notoriety to promote our state to the world.
And now we hear that our governor polls three percent in a Massachusetts presidential primary survey of possible 2016 candidates.
That's without even trying. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson travelled that state relentlessly in 2011 and didn't score any better.
And to top it off for this month, Gov. Martinez was invited by Vice President Joe Biden to his Cinco de Mayo party. The two evidently became good friends while on their trip to Rome.
With better than a 60 percent popularity rating within the state Susana Martinez is leading a charmed life. Will that bubble ever burst?
