New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez plans a re-election fundraiser in the nation's capital with prominent Republicans from across the country.

The governor is scheduled to attend the fundraiser Wednesday in suburban Washington, D.C.

Campaign spokesman Chris Sanchez said Martinez traveled Tuesday to New York for a Republican Governors Association meeting, and she's going to Washington on Wednesday for the fundraising reception.

A similar fundraiser was held in 2013, featuring guests such as Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus and House Speaker John Boehner.

The re-election campaign will pay for the governor's travel costs to the fundraiser and her return to New Mexico on Thursday. Sanchez said the governors association will cover costs of the New York trip.
