On 9 September 1850, the American government established the New Mexico Territory, which included all of present-day Arizona and New Mexico, and parts of Colorado; the official capital was established at Santa Fe in 1851. During the American Civil War, Confederate troops from Texas briefly occupied southern New Mexico in July 1861, pushed up the Rio Grande River valley as far as Santa Fe by February 1862, and were defeated in the Battle of Glorieta Pass in March 1862 (and then fled back south). The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad reached New Mexico in 1878, crossing Raton Pass that December; it reached Lamy, New Mexico in 1879 and Santa Fe itself in 1880, and Deming, New Mexico in 1881. The rival Southern Pacific was completed between the Rio Grande valley and the Arizona border in 1881. Congress voted New Mexico into the Union on 6 January 1912; President Taft signed the legislation that same day, making New Mexico the 47th state. (Arizona was admitted on 14 February 1912.)

November 2013 article in National Journal Magazine that reveals McCleskey's behind-the-scenes activity

In February 2014, Shadow Governor of New Mexico Jay McCleskey started the Susan Martinez campaign for President in 2016 by releasing her
new Twitter account of #Martinez4pres. (If by some miracle she gets elected to national office such as Veep or is appointed to a Cabinet slot,
she is therefor planning to quit in the middle of her second term as New Mexico Governor.)

Mother Jones Magazine April 2014 exposé "Is New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez The Next Sarah Palin?" by Andy Kroll
magazine article online at Mother Jones
TV news story on "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" that airs the audio clips

By mid-2014, Gov. Martinez decided to run on her record of accomplishments and to lie about Gary King's accomplishments as State Attorney General;
but Martinez is leaving out her biggest accomplishments: In 40-plus months, the Martinez Administration and Republicans in the Legistature have:
—  created zero new jobs for New Mexico, indeed the state lost almost 6,000 jobs within the last year;
—  placed New Mexico second in the nation for teen pregnancy;
—  placed New Mexico 50th in the nation for well being of children;
—  and placed New Mexico first in the nation for child hunger and second for adult hunger.
By early 2015, the Martinez Administration caused:
—  New Mexico ranks 49th in the nation in overall education;
—  New Mexico ranks 49th in the nation in the percentage of children living in poverty;
—  more children go to bed hungry in New Mexico than in any other state.

Per court testimony Thursday 28 April 2016, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and her Republican administration ordered state employees to falsify documents
to prevent New Mexico families from getting emergency food stamps; the scheme was part of a cover-up to hide the fact that the Martinez administration
is shamefully behind in helping other desperate New Mexico families.
