Republicans are holding their presidential nominating convention Aug. 27-30 in Tampa, Fla.
A primetime speaking role increases the potential for national television exposure for Martinez, who is the nation's first Hispanic female governor.
Martinez was elected in 2010 and is the first female governor of New Mexico.
