Martinez rebukes Reid for Hispanic comments

NM Gov. Susana Martinez, a Hispanic Republican governor, responding on Fox News last night to Harry Reid's 2010 comments that Hispanics simply couldn't be Republicans.

"I find it disappointing that anyone would think that we're not independent thinkers. I'm an independent thinker. I am a woman, I am a Republican, and I think for myself, and I decide where I vote and how I vote.

And to make a statement like that is to assume that we are not independent thinkers, and we are."

Reid, patronizing, in 2010:

"I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay. Do I need to say more?"

Martinez, last night.
