Martinez RNC speech rescheduled, speaks before Ryan

Posted: Updated:

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The scheduled speech by New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez at the Republican National Convention has been rescheduled thanks to Tropical Storm Isaac.

Martinez is scheduled to speak Wednesday around 8 p.m. New Mexico time, right before GOP Vice Presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan is slated to speak.

A primetime speaking role increases the potential for national television exposure for Martinez, who is the nation's first Latina governor.

Martinez was elected in 2010 and is the first female governor of New Mexico.
