ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Republican mayor in the largest city in the most Hispanic state in the nation won’t say if he voted for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry says he voted absentee in New Mexico’s Republican primary but refused to reveal which GOP candidate earned his vote.

Berry says revealing his vote would amount to an endorsement and he wasn’t making any presidential endorsements yet.

An anti-Trump protest turned violent in Albuquerque last month after Trump held a rally in the city. Protesters spoke out against Trump’s previous comments about Mexican immigrants.

At the rally, Trump criticized fellow Republican and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, the nation’s only Latina governor. Martinez also has refused to endorse Trump.

New Mexico holds it primary on Tuesday.
