Governor Martinez says she won’t support Trump after ‘appalling’ comments

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez has released a statement in light of recent national news concerning Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s crude remarks about women that were released Friday.

“What Trump brags about is appalling and completely unacceptable,” said Gov. Susana Martinez. “No woman should ever be treated the way he claims he treated women. Unfortunately, there is a pattern of disturbing conduct and offensive rhetoric that raises serious questions about his fitness to be President. That’s why I have withheld my support from the very beginning, and will not support him now.”

Martinez has also previously criticized Trump for comments he made about Mexican immigrants. And the two gained national attention back in May after Governor Martinez stood Trump up at his Albuquerque rally.

The Governor has never announced any endorsement for Trump. In the primary election season, Gov. Martinez was endorsing Marco Rubio up until he dropped out of the race. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
