Hold Your Applause: Martinez’s Name Booed During Town Hall Meeting

Pence faces ‘united chorus of jeers’ after calling RGA Chair a ‘great governor’

Mike Pence tried his best to stand up for the Chair of the Republican Governors Association, but her constituents just weren’t having it.

During a town hall meeting in New Mexico last night, Pence was met with a “united chorus of jeers” after fielding questions about Gov. Susana Martinez and her position on supporting Donald Trump.

“She is a great governor,” Pence said.

His response, however, “prompted vast jeering among several hundred fellow Republicans,” reported NBC News.

Watch the video below and see the reaction for yourself:

Last night’s episode marks the second time that Trump’s campaign has ignited home-state scrutiny of Gov. Martinez. During a campaign visit in May, Trump told a crowd of thousands of New Mexican voters that Gov. Martinez was “not doing the job,” and that “she’s got to do a better job.”

Martinez has consistently ducked questions over her support for Donald Trump and still refuses to answer if she will vote for Trump in November.
