Governors of Nevada, New Mexico, Kentucky travel to Japan

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Republican governors of Nevada, New Mexico and Kentucky and Nebraska's GOP lieutenant governor are wrapping up a brief trip to Tokyo to meet with their Japanese counterparts.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin and Nebraska Lt. Gov. Mike Foley were participating in the trip ending Tuesday organized by the U.S. National Governor's Association and Japan National Governors' Association.

The delegation met with about half a dozen Japanese governors and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during the trip, which lasted just over three days.

The visit included discussions about the role local governments can play in innovation and attracting business from overseas.
