ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez’s name has been floated as a potential vice presidential candidate, but the Republican has no intention of throwing her hat into the ring.

Her office said Friday that her feelings about seeking a higher office haven’t changed despite her name being mentioned this week by GOP presidential hopeful Florida Sen. Marco Rubio as he discussed the party’s talent pool.

Martinez is the nation’s only Latina governor. She’s also the vice chair of the Republican Governors Association and is expected to be tapped for another leadership role when the group meets next week for its annual convention.

Martinez returned to New Mexico on Friday after a quick trip to Texas for a political fundraiser. She also has attended other out-of-state fundraisers in recent weeks.
