    New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) denigrated Hispanics in 2010 when Reid said he could not imagine how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. Martinez charged that Reid, in those remarks, assumed Latinos are "not independent thinkers."

    "Well, you know, I find that disappointing that anyone would think that we're not independent thinkers," Martinez said in an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News' "On The Record" when asked about the remarks. "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."
