TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona Governor Doug Ducey met with Sonora Governor Claudia Pavlovich in Mexico Wednesday in a long-planned trip to discuss a variety of issues.

The meeting comes just days after an attack that left nine Americans dead Monday morning, including children and infants, and after the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory for parts of Mexico.
