NM Governor On Campaign Trail For Romney

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is back on the campaign trail for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The Romney campaign says Martinez is to attend a rally Tuesday evening in Colorado with the presidential candidate, vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, rocker-rapper Kid Rock and others.

The rally in the Denver area comes the day after the final debate between Romney and President Barack Obama.

The governor's political adviser said Martinez will return to New Mexico Tuesday night after the rally.

Martinez is the nation's first female Hispanic governor. Hispanics account for nearly 21 percent of Colorado's population.

The governor campaigned for Romney earlier this month in Nevada.
