New Mexico governor, Donald Trump converge on gala

Susana Martinez

SANTA FE (AP) – A Republican gala honoring New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez in April will also include presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump as a special guest.

The New York Republican Party confirmed Wednesday that the two politicians are scheduled to converge at a fundraiser in New York City. The event takes place five days before the April 19 New York primary.

Martinez indicated Wednesday that she still has not endorsed Trump or any other GOP candidate after she campaigned unsuccessfully for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. GOP candidates John Kasich and Ted Cruz also have been invited to the gala.

Martinez is the chairwoman of the Republican Governors Association, a fundraising arm of the GOP on state-level campaigns and issues. She previously denounced Trump when he compared Mexican immigrants to rapists and drug dealers. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
