FILE - In this April 14, 2016 file photo, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez speaks during the New York Republican State Committee Annual Gala in New York. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump chastised Martinez for not doing her job when it came to trends in unemployment, federal food aid and even containing the Syrian refugee crisis while he stumped at a rally in May 2016 in the nation's most Hispanic state. Martinez, who has not endorsed Trump, skipped the Albuquerque event and the public spat dampened lingering speculation that Martinez might be picked as vice president despite to attract more female and minority voters to the Republican ticket.
