Several Democratic presidential hopefuls have made or planned trips to the Silver State this holiday week, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
But only Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. Seth Moulton spent the actual 4th of July holiday here, participating in the 71st Annual Boulder City Damboree Celebration. The two kicked off the morning at a pancake breakfast — Moulton made the pancakes and Booker served them — before marching with supporters in the annual parade.
Booker then held a meet-and-greet at the house of a local supporter, where he fielded questions on climate change, school shootings and the public financing of elections, while Moulton headed to a holiday celebration in Henderson.
The Nevada Independent photographer Jeff Scheid was there to capture some of the moments in Boulder City.
Update at 8:56 a.m. on 7/5/19: Three photo captions were corrected to reflect that Rep. Seth Moulton is from Massachusetts, not Maryland.
