Susana Martinez, a district attorney and the Republican nominee for governor of New Mexico, has a new ad firing back at an ad from the National Education Association's New Mexico branch, which featured a teacher criticizing Martinez and praising Democratic nominee Diane Denish on the subject of school vouchers. The ad said that Martinez favored vouchers when talking to strictly Republican audiences, and has given a different message for the general election. "Teachers stand with Diane Denish, because when it comes to education, she's on our side," said special education teacher Freda Trujillo.
Now Martinez has responded with an ad of her own. "Remember this attack ad for Denish? With this teacher?" says Martinez in her spot, followed by a short clip of Trujillo in the NEA ad. "There's a reason she did it. Here's her husband. We convicted him. He's in prison now for 23 years - kidnapping. The ad looks different now, doesn't it? I don't know what they'll do next, but don't be fooled."
