Martinez: Will Not Leave New Mexico For Potential Appointment

Gov. Susana Martinez said Wednesday at a political rally she would not accept an appointment by Mitt Romney if he is elected president and offers her an appointment.

“No…I’m committed to New Mexico. I will not leave this state. I have a lot of work to get done,” said Martinez.

Martinez arrived in Mesilla Plaza along with Florida senator Marco Rubio to endorse U.S. senate candidate for New Mexico, Heather Wilson

Wilson trails Martin Heinrich in recent polls by about 10 points. Election Day is November 6-th.

John Kerry visited Santa Fe Wednesday to endorse Wilson’s opponent, Martin Heinrich.
