Tonight, we have made history. Together, we have taken a decisive step toward bringing bold change to New Mexico. I am deeply moved and humbled by the confidence and trust you have placed in me. The campaign was a spirited one, and I would like to take a moment and acknowledge Diane Denish for her service to our state. At the end of the day, New Mexicans chose a new direction and I thank them for their courage and trust. It means so much to share this with each one of you in my hometown of Las Cruces. And for those watching on television though out the state – thank you all as well. I must thank my wonderful and patient husband Chuck who has stood by me throughout. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for him. Also, with us tonight is my stepson Carlo, who we are so proud of, as well as my father, brother and sister Lettie and so many others. I want to thank my running mate John Sanchez who is here with his beautiful family.
