ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez still is not ready to make an endorsement in the GOP presidential race.
A Martinez spokesman said Monday the nation’s only Latina governor will remain neutral as the contest moves next month to states with more Hispanic voters.
The Republican governor previously denounced GOP hopeful Donald Trump following comments he made about Mexican immigrants. She also told The Associated Press she didn’t know and didn’t follow Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas after he announced he was running for president.
In November, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida floated Martinez’s name as a possible running mate.
Martinez has downplayed suggestions about a vice-presidential spot.
