August 10, 2016 GMT

Gov. Susana Martinez made a quick trip to Dallas today to attend unspecified political meetings, according to the Governor’s Office.

Martinez, who is the chairwoman of the Republican Governors Association, a national group that supports GOP gubernatorial candidates, has traveled out of state extensively in recent months.

Most recently, she headed up New Mexico’s delegation to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last month.

As for this week’s trip, the governor is scheduled to return to New Mexico tomorrow, Martinez spokesman Michael Lonergan said.

Her political committee, Susana PAC, will pay for the expenses of the governor’s trip.

Per the state Constitution, Lt. Gov. John Sanchez will serve as acting governor while Martinez is traveling out of state.
