Skip to comments.Talking Politics and Playtime With Susanna Martinez (New Mexico)

I scored the first, exclusive post-election interview with Susanna Martinez last week.
I don't tell you this to brag about my journalistic prowess (oh, maybe just a little). But I figured, with the election over it would be good to sit down with Martinez and get to know her better.
Her schedule was awfully full on Thursday, but she had an availability after dinner at 7. We met at her home, and there she was in the living room wearing comfy-looking pink plush pants and a tie-dyed T-shirt. She had her hair pulled back in a ponytail, and she was waving a handmade campaign sign. She was missing one front tooth.
Martinez was still excited by Tuesday's election and also a little jazzed by the event she had just come from tryouts for the Christmas play at her church. She snagged the part of an angel, with means she gets to sing and dance and wear a pretty white dress with wings.
Our interview time was a little tight, which didn't surprise me. Martinez's bedtime is 8:30 p.m.
