"The Governor has said repeatedly over the years that she isn’t interested in serving as Vice President. She appreciates that such attention puts New Mexico in the spotlight, but she is fully committed to serving the people of our state," said Chris Sanchez, a spokesman for Martinez.

The New Mexico governor had been considered a potential pick to be Trump’s running mate. Many believed she would have been able to increase the business mogul’s low favorability ratings with women and Hispanics.
