SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez plans to travel to Nevada to support New Mexico’s collegiate basketball teams in their conference tournaments and to raise money for her re-election.

Campaign spokesman Danny Diaz said the Republican governor and her husband, Chuck Franco, are to leave Thursday for Las Vegas. They will return on Sunday, and the governor’s campaign will cover travel expenses.

The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team plays Thursday in the Mountain West Conference tournament at the Thomas and Mack Center.

The New Mexico State University Aggies play Thursday in the Western Athletic Conference tournament at the Orleans Arena.

The Aggies and Lobos won their conference tournaments last year.

Campaign fundraising is planned while Martinez is in Nevada. The governor’s campaign had cash-on-hand of nearly $3.3 million last fall.
