New Mexico Gov. Martinez won’t commit to voting for Trump

Susana Martinez

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez won’t say if she will vote for Donald Trump if he is the Republican presidential nominee.

But the chair of the Republican Governors Association and the nation’s only Latina governor said Tuesday she’s “certainly not” voting for Democratic hopefuls Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

Her remarks come following a recent Associated Press survey of GOP senators and governors across the country that showed just under half of respondents would not commit to backing Trump if he’s the nominee.

Their reluctance foreshadowed a potentially split in the party this fall.

Martinez says around 70 percent of GOP delegates are still up for grabs and she still has time to make a decision.

The Republican governor previously denounced Trump following comments he made about Mexican immigrants.
