Talk is cheap. Where is Martinez' data?

Someone else first quipped;

"In God we trust, everyone else must bring data."
DA Susana Martinez is claiming to be a huge success as a District Attorney. She hasn't brought any data to substantiate her claim.

Surely there must be statistical comparisons that can be made between District Attorneys related to conviction rates, plea bargains, and other meaningful measures of prosecutorial success. Why isn't she, if not touting them, at least presenting them for critical examination?

The point may be moot, as regardless of her success as a District Attorney, a completely different skill set is required of the person who would be Governor.

We need a skilled Governor in the Roundhouse, not a skilled DA.
