Gov. Susana Martinez will not attend presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's rally in Albuquerque Tuesday.
Martinez told KOB on Monday that she is "too busy" to attend the rally.
"I am really busy. I'm the governor of New Mexico and I'm really focused on what's going on here in New Mexico - just like the announcement we just did with the announcement of 100 high-tech research jobs, improving the education for our kids, another job announcement tomorrow," Gov. Martinez told KOB. "Those are the things I've concentrated on and the things I'll keep concentrating on."
She also said that Trump has not reached out to her to try and persuade her to come to his event Tuesday.
Trump is scheduled to speak at the Albuquerque Convention Center at 7 p.m. on May 24.

Martinez has publicly stated her opposition to Trump's plan to build a large wall separating the U.S. and Mexico and has yet to endorse him.
The governor also shot down the idea of becoming Trump's running mate back in February, telling KOB she had "no interest to be on any ticket."
Gov. Martinez had previously changed her tone on the Republican National Convention, which will be held later this summer in Cleveland. Initially, she said she would not attend, but has since said she is obligated to go as head of the Republican Governors Association.
