Even before Susana Martinez was sworn in as New Mexico’s first Hispanic female governor, there was some speculation in the national media that she could be a potential candidate on a national Republican ticket.

The whispers turned into a murmur last year, when Martinez gave a well-received speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. That murmur rose to a shout recently, after Martinez made campaign appearances with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie the day before his landslide re-election in November. Suddenly, there were a slew of headlines speculating about a Christie/Martinez ticket in 2016.

    Democratic Party Chairman Bregman said, “Anyone considering her as a running mate should be aware, she will be the Sarah Palin of New Mexico.”
    Outside of being a female Republican governor; ain't seeing much comparison. Martinez doesn't have a high-profile loose-cannon family and is more adept at keeping foot out of mouth, so far. Let's just hope she doesn't go for Palin's milf-on-a-bearskin persona.
