ANNOUNCER: Four years ago—a national recession, federal budget cuts hit us hard—so New Mexico chose bold: the first Hispanic woman governor in American history, Susana Martinez.
MARTINEZ: Being governor has never been about making a name for myself. It’s about making a difference in the lives of New Mexicans.
ANNOUNCER: Largest deficit ever? Gone, without raising taxes. Bipartisan jobs package. Cut taxes 24 times. Number one in export growth. Improving our schools. Graduation rates—up. Hispanics lead the nation on Advanced Placement Tests.
MARTINEZ: I grew up knowing what it's like to struggle and how we all helped one another. Helping people—it’s the best part about being governor. Helping kids read by the third grade so they can chase their dreams. Helping small businesses create good jobs. There's more to do, but I believe in New Mexico and that tomorrow will be better than today.
ANNOUNCER: She's our governor: Susana Martinez.
