Today, after other Republican governors announced who they are backing in the primary, the Democratic Party of New Mexico reissued their statement calling on Martinez be honest with New Mexico about who she supports.
“With Marco Rubio out of the race, it’s time for Governor Martinez to come clean on whether she will support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee. Governor Martinez has been hiding from reporters on Trump. New Mexicans deserve an honest answer on whether our governor stands with Donald Trump and his offensive remarks and out-of-the-mainstream policy positions,” said Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.
Earlier today, North Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who backed Rubio before he exited the race, announced her support for Ted Cruz and Florida Governor Rick Scott announced his support for Donald Trump.
