New Mexico (Republican) Governor Breaks With Romney Over 47 Percent Remark




New Mexico Governor Breaks With Romney Over 47 Percent Remark

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R) — who Mitt Romney quoted in a speech on Monday — has joined a growing number of Republicans in backing away from the former Massachusetts governor’s claim that 47 percent of Americans are dependent on government and won’t vote for Republicans anyway. Asked if she was offended by the remarks, “Martinez said New Mexico has many people who are living at the poverty level and their votes count just as much as anyone else.”

1. What about his comments on Hispanics !!!

Rmoney says that a growing Hispanic voting population is BAD for the country.

"we are having a much harder time with Hispanic voters, and if the Hispanic
voting bloc becomes as committed to the Democrats as the African American
voting block has in the past, why, we're in trouble as a party and, I think, as a nation."
