At 18, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez guarded the parking lot at the Catholic Church bingo, carrying a Smith & Wesson .375 magnum! In her RNC speech, Martinez tells of how she left the Democrat Party. After discussing issues with local republican leaders, Martinez and her husband realized they shared more values and ideals with the GOP, saying “I’ll be damned, we’re republicans.”
For obvious reasons, the speeches of Condi Rice and Paul Ryan are getting most of the attention today as the pundits comment on last night’s convention. However, I don’t want anybody to overlook the woman I thought would have made an excellent vice-president choice for Romney. Susana Martinez is a rising star in the party!
