Gov. Martinez traveling to San Antonio tonight; busy travel schedule on tap

Gov. Susana Martinez will spend time in five different states — including New Mexico — in the next eight days.

Among the first-term Republican governor’s upcoming travels is an Oct. 24 trip to Wisconsin, where Martinez will attend campaign fundraisers for Gov. Scott Walker in Madison and Milwaukee.

Walker’s campaign will cover Martinez’s travel costs, the governor’s political adviser Jay McCleskey said.

Martinez, who reported earlier this week having nearly $3.3 million in her re-election account, will start the busy travel schedule tonight when she leaves for San Antonio. In that city, she will give the keynote address tomorrow for the Texas Federation of Republican Women’s biennial convention.

Martinez will return to New Mexico tomorrow evening and the group is paying for her travel expenses, McCleskey said.

Next week, Martinez will make a quick, single-day trip to Oklahoma on Oct. 21 to raise money for her re-election campaign.

Before heading to Wisconsin, she will then go to Denver on Oct. 23, where she will hold talks with local business leaders. Costs for that trip will be paid by the Colorado Chamber of Commerce, McCleskey said.

Martinez is scheduled to return to New Mexico on the evening of Oct. 24, he said.
