Martinez Launches Ad With Democratic Supporters

  A new television ad by Gov. Susana Martinez's re-election campaign features northern New Mexico Democratic officials praising the Republican governor.

The Martinez campaign said Wednesday the 30-second ad will air statewide on broadcast and cable television.

The ad seeks to portray Martinez as a caring, bipartisan governor who sets aside politics in helping communities.

Former Taos Mayor Darren Cordova lauds the governor for her assistance when the community struggled with a natural gas outage during the winter of 2011. He declares, "She is one of us."

Las Vegas Mayor Alfonso Ortiz said in the ad that Martinez "cares for all the people of New Mexico."

Martinez pushed for state funding to help Las Vegas address water supply problems.
