New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez speaks at the hangar facility at Spaceport America, northeast of Truth Or Consequences, on October 17, 2011 in New Mexico. Sir Richard Branson was on hand to host guests and media at the Keys To A New Dawn event, for the dedication of Virgin Galactic’s new home at Spaceport America, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport in southern New Mexico, where the Spaceport America Terminal Hangar Facility will serve as the operating hub for Virgin Galactic and is expected to house two WhiteKnightTwos and five SpaceShipTwos, in addition to all of Virgin’s astronaut preparation facilities and mission control.

Chris Christie just picked up an amazing 2016 endorsement, albeit one that’s tucked in the middle of an article about how conservatives “recoil” at the thought of him being the GOP’s nominee. “I love his authenticity, I love who he is,” Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico told the New York Times, adding, “I will support Governor Christie in anything he decides to do in life.” There’s already speculation that Martinez might be Christie’s running mate (yes, the 2016 veepstakes is already underway), but she should probably hold off, just in case Christie tries to annex Delaware or something.
