SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez will campaign in Nevada this weekend for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The Romney campaign announced Thursday that Martinez will appear at three events Saturday in the Las Vegas area, starting with a rally at Romney's state campaign headquarters.

Martinez, the nation's first Hispanic female governor, will greet voters at a campaign office in eastern Las Vegas and there will be an event in the suburban community of Henderson.

The governor fluently speaks Spanish and could help Romney reach out to Hispanics, which account for 27 percent of Nevada's population. Nevada doesn't reliably vote Democrat or Republican, and is considered a battleground state in the presidential election.

Martinez joined other GOP governors in August at a campaign rally for Romney in Colorado.
