FBI agents have become interested in the inner circle of New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, the Santa Fe Reporter writes.

According to the Reporter, agents have been interviewing close political allies of the Republican over a lucrative, 25-year lease the state signed with the Downs at Albuquerque Racetrack & Casino.

The lease has been marred with problems from the onset and has cast a shadow of suspicion on Martinez.

Investigators have questioned people close to the governor about the bidding process and the state officials’ relationship with Downs, according to the Reporter.
