SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – A spokesman for New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says she is traveling to Florida to meet with Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
Martinez planned to travel Tuesday to Orlando for a meeting of the Republican Governors Association and to speak with Pence, the head of Donald Trump’s transition team.
Martinez is chairwoman of the association that helps elect GOP candidates for governor. The second term GOP governor has offered congratulations to Trump on his election after refusing to endorse his campaign.
The election that propelled Trump to the White House also resulted in Republican wins in a trio of governorships previously held by Democrats in Missouri, New Hampshire and Vermont.
The Republican Governors Association spent more than $50 million on this year’s races. The association is paying for Martinez’s travel.
