SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is traveling to New York to join GOP presidential candidates at a fundraising gala ahead of that state’s Republican primary.

A spokesman for Martinez says she left on Wednesday for New York City. The Republican Party of New York is paying for her trip.

Martinez had campaigned briefly for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio before he dropped out, and has not indicated which remaining candidate she favors.

On Friday, Martinez plans to travel on to Palm Beach, Florida, for a meeting of the Republican Governors Association. She is the chairwoman of the GOP fundraising group. The governors association will pay for travel to the event.
