Susana Counterpunches King's Counterpunch

There's a new ad up from Gov. Susana Martinez, this one calling Gary King's recent ad "ridiculous."

It deals mainly with King's criticism of Martinez in the area of equal pay for women -- when King has faced gender-discrimination lawsuits of his own.

There will be more about Martinez's new ad in tomorrow's New Mexican.

Meanwhile, ponder this: Is Susana Martinez the only Republican running for office in, say, the last 40 years to include praise from The American Civil Liberties Union in a campaign commercial?

"The ACLU already praised Gov. Martinez for signing the Equal Pay for Women Act, fighting to narrow the gender wage gap...," the ad says, flashing a quote from the organization over footage of the gov talking to women.

Here's the ad

And here's King's ad in case you haven't seen it.
