U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is coming to Nevada next weekend, her first visit to the first-in-the-West state of her 2020 presidential campaign.
The Massachusetts senator will host an organizing event at the Springs Preserve in Las Vegas at 3:30 p.m. next Sunday. Warren had planned a similar event for last month but canceled the trip to stay in Washington, D.C. to vote to end the government shutdown.
The trip is part of her seven-state organizing tour launched after formally announcing her 2020 presidential campaign on Saturday in Lawrence, Mass. at the site of one of the nation’s most historic labor strikes. In her speech, Warren called Trump “the latest and most extreme symptom of what’s gone wrong in America” and promised to “fight my heart out so that every kid in America can have the same opportunity I had.”
Warren joins a handful of Democratic presidential candidates, announced and unannounced, who have visited the state this year.
Julian Castro, former Housing and Urban Development secretary under President Barack Obama and the former mayor of San Antonio, met with students at Rancho High School in January before formally announcing his presidential bid. Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat from Washington who is mulling a presidential bid, delivered the keynote address at Battle Born Progress’ annual progressive summit last month but has yet to officially throw his hat in the race.
In June, Warren delivered the keynote address at the Nevada Democratic Party Convention in Reno and participated in a “Local Brews + National Views” event with U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto hosted by the party in Henderson.
