New Mexico flagWith a fight against big money ahead of her, a new Republican candidate has just announced she is running for U.S. Senate to make a difference for New Mexico.

Elisa Martinez, founder of the New Mexico Alliance for Life, has announced a bid for retiring U.S. Senator Tom Udall's (D) seat.

"I've seen our state from many perspectives," says Martinez, a Hispanic and Navajo. "I've seen the struggles of small business working for my dad, and the hardships on the reservation I've witnessed first-hand. I started a non-profit to fight for women and unborn children in our state."

She also noted in her announcement speech the saying about New Mexico being last in everything good and first in everything bad.

"We lead the nation in car thefts and robberies. Our schools rank last in the nation," she acknowledges. "We have the second highest poverty rate in the country. Our high school graduation rates are lower than any other state. We're known as the late-term capital of the nation."

Further, more New Mexican children go to bed hungry than in any other state. So Martinez knows it will be a tough battle to win a Senate seat, especially considering the piles of out-of-state cash coming into The Land of Enchantment to send a left-wing, pro-abortion Democrat to Washington next year.
