Shown at the Romney rally today in Las Vegas are Gov. Susana Martinez (R-NM), Ann-Marie Murrell of PolitiChick, and actress Courtenay Turner of the ‘Living the Life’ TV series. Martinez is the first Latina to hold a governorship, and has been campaigning for the GOP ticket in Florida and Arizona.
When she took office, Martinez fired the chef in the governor’s mansion, grounded the executive jet, halved her staff, and balanced the budget. She addressed the Republican National Convention immediately before Paul Ryan.
Today she said “Too many Americans are out of work, and our debt is out of control. This election needs to be about those issues. Obama promised to bring us all together, to cut unemployment, to pass immigration reform in his first year, but he didn’t even have the courage to try.
“He promised to cut the deficit in half in his first term, but it has been four straight years of trillion dollar deficits.”
Murrell says “Las Vegas is crucial to this election. It has the highest unemployment rate in the nation at 12.1%, and one of the highest foreclosure rates as well. I drove all through the suburbs today and saw only a few Obama signs.”
