New Mexico Republican Gov. Susana Martinez is raising re-election money in Texas and Arizona this week.

Martinez political adviser Jay McCleskey said the governor is fundraising in Dallas on Tuesday before flying back to New Mexico to attend an election night gathering for Albuquerque Mayor R. J. Berry.

The governor held a fundraiser Monday in Phoenix and then flew to Texas.

Martinez will return to Texas on Wednesday to raise money at an event in Austin and speak at the University of Texas School of Public Affairs.

Martinez will be back in New Mexico on Thursday.

McCleskey said the governor's re-election campaign is paying for her travel expenses.

Democratic Attorney General Gary King and state Sen. Linda Lopez of Albuquerque are running for governor next year.
