The chairman of New York Republican State Committee touted Gov. Susana Martinez (R-N.M.) as a possible running mate for the eventual GOP presidential nominee.


In a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday, Ed Cox, son-in-law of former President Nixon, mentioned a local GOP event in which she would be the honoree.

"Our honoree is Gov. Susana Martinez, the first Latina governor in the history of the United States, governor of New Mexico, of course a potential vice presidential candidate," Cox said.

"She's got a wonderful personal story, a great history as governor. And having all three presidential candidates there while she delivers her keynote speech, and you've got them delivering their speeches — it's gonna be quite an evening, John."
