Gov. Susana Martinez (R-NM) criticizes Romney on 47%.
“We have a lot of people that are at the poverty level in New Mexico, but they count just as much as anybody else,” Martinez said. “There is a net that does allow them to be caught and taken care of, whether it be through medical services, whether it be food services, whether it be with funding for apartments, for housing.
“I think, certainly the fact that New Mexico provides that safety net is a good thing,” the Republican governor said.
