With the release of polling data in the Albuquerque Journal today which show Gov. Martinez with an approval rating of an astonishing 69%, it is worth noting that a principled, center/right agenda can be very popular, even in a relatively liberal state like New Mexico.
Prior to the conventions, I sat down with Sarah Gustavus at KUNM for a national interview for the program “Latino USA” centered on Gov. Martinez and her efforts here in New Mexico. Listen to the interview here. Sen. Majority Leader and Martinez opponent Sen. Majority Leader Michael Sanchez was also interviewed. Interview is about 6 minutes.
