Martinez spokeswoman Emilee Cantrell announced the Friday-morning trip. The governor's office did not respond immediately to requests for more information about the meetings.

Martinez is showing renewed cooperation with President Trump's administration on issues including border security and management of public lands. Earlier this week, she accompanied U.S. Agriculture Sonny Perdue on a visit to northern New Mexico to meet with farming and livestock industry groups.

The second-term governor plans to travel Sunday to New York for meetings of the Republican Governors Association, a fund-raising group that seeks to elect GOP governors.

Congressman Steve Pearce is the lone Republican gubernatorial candidate to succeed Martinez in fall elections.
