SANTA FE, N.M.—New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is helping to raise money next week for a political group that recruits and supports Hispanic Republican candidates in Texas.

Martinez political adviser Jay McCleskey said Thursday the governor will attend a fundraiser Monday in Dallas for Hispanic Republicans of Texas.

Martinez, who took office last year, is the nation's first female Hispanic governor.

McCleskey said Martinez will travel to Texas and return to New Mexico on the same day. The Texas group is paying for her expenses.

Martinez is campaigning in Nevada on Saturday for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
