SANTA FE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham traveled to New Orleans for political meetings on Friday, her second out-of-state trip since winning reelection to a second term as governor last month.

While in Louisiana, the governor will attend meetings of the Democratic Governors Association, a group that she chaired in 2021 and that spent heavily in support of her reelection campaign.

On Sunday, Lujan Grisham will travel to Washington D.C. for meetings with members of Congress, a spokeswoman said.

She will then head to Philadelphia, where she will deliver remarks on her administration’s attempts to address poverty and hunger issues in New Mexico during a Bloomberg American Health Summit.

The cost of the governor’s travel will be paid for by a mix of private and public dollars, as the DGA and Bloomberg will cover travel expenses for their respective events, Lujan Grisham spokeswoman Nora Meyers Sackett said Friday.

Lujan Grisham last month led a New Mexico delegation that traveled to Egypt to participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

The governor tested positive for COVID-19 the day after she returned to New Mexico, but resumed public events this week after a five-day isolation period.
