SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Republican Gov. Susana Martinez is making a political fundraising trip to Nevada and California.

Martinez political adviser Jay McCleskey said the governor is attending a Republican Governors Association fundraiser on Friday in Las Vegas with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, the RGA chairman.

Martinez also is scheduled to speak Saturday in Las Vegas at a luncheon for the Republican Jewish Coalition's National Women's Committee.

On Sunday, the governor and her husband, Chuck Franco, travel to Palm Desert in southern California for fundraising receptions and meetings for the RGA and her re-election campaign.

Martinez will be back in New Mexico on Monday.

McCleskey said the RGA and the governor's campaign committee will pay for Martinez's travel costs.

Martinez is the nation's first Hispanic female governor. She was elected in 2010.
