Posted on 03/03/2016 7:42:27 AM PST by pilgrim
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez will endorse Marco Rubio's presidential campaign Thursday.
"Marco Rubio is a compelling leader who can unite the country around conservative principles that will improve the lives of all Americans," the Republican governor said in a statement given to Politico. "The stakes for our great country are too high and the differences between the candidates too great for me to remain neutral in this race. I wholeheartedly trust Marco to keep us safe and ensure a better tomorrow."
The endorsement from Martinez, the chair of the Republican Governors Association and the nation's only Latina governor, comes at a crucial period of time for Rubio, who won only one state during Super Tuesday.
Martinez, whose name has also been floated as a possible GOP vice presidential pick, will be with Rubio on the campaign trail in Kansas on Friday and at a rally in Jacksonville, Fla., on Saturday.
DO the citizens of New Mexico know their governor supports wholesale amnesty?
If one is a slut for the Open Borders lobby, then one is indeed a slut for the Open Borders lobby. EZ call.
Um. No, he's not that at all. Sorry Gov. You fail.
She needs the funding and doesn’t want to be blacklisted. Cram it babe. Folks will remember you. Incidentally, Rubes is going to die in Florida... so, what’s the point.
Making a list...
And checking it twice....
Great endorsement. Tantamount to endorsing Mitt Romney in December of 2008. Too late. Cabana Boy is already out of it.
Another one bites the dust...

Isn’t this like jumping on the Titanic about 3 minutes before the iceberg shows up?
I thought the party bosses turned on their boy Rubio.
Guess Oh Suzanna didn’t get the memo...
Good Lord! A border state governor showing her true intentions of supporting a pro amnesty candidate over one who will build a wall.
She was one of the good ones. Somebody is calling in a favor.
Aw come on folks... she’s just helping keep the not-Trump voters divided. Her action will ensure Trump wins New Mexico. Trump vs Cruz, Cruz wins. Trump vs Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich, Trump wins. It’s that simple.
Wow, what an intellectual powerhouse. She hitches a ride aboard the “S.S. Rubio” just as it slips stern-high beneath the waves.
GOPe: Dumber than wharf rats.
She’s hispanic. It’s clear where her loyalty lies. Not with the US.
You go girl!!! It takes guts to put yourself out on the line like that.
We finally can vote for Foam Queen now that Susana has put her stamp of approval on him!
Endorsing Trump would end her political career in New Mexico. Endorsing Rubio will actually do more to ensure Trump defeats a divided opposition.
Never seen a rat join a sinking ship before.
