Former New Mexico governor named most fiscally responsible

A leading political think tank has named former New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez the most fiscally responsible governor in the U.S. 

The Cato Institute's Fiscal Policy Report Card on America's Governors gave just five governors an A-grade and only Martinez an A-plus. 

The group analyzed data from 2016 to 2018 and says the Republican earned the top score for actions like vetoing wasteful spending and tax hikes and lowering corporate taxes. 

All five governors who received A's are Republicans.
