First Lady Jill Biden will visit Las Vegas on Saturday as part of a weekend-long tour to engage women voters in swing states, sources confirmed to The Nevada Independent.

The first lady is launching a “Women for Biden-Harris” campaign Friday — coinciding with the beginning of Women’s History Month — with plans to barnstorm Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and Wisconsin. In Las Vegas, she plans to meet with women volunteers and discuss the stakes of the election, including health care.

“Women put Joe in the White House four years ago, and women will do it again,” Jill Biden said in a statement.

In 2020, exit polls showed her husband beat former President Donald Trump among women voters in Nevada by 10 points, a significantly larger margin than the 2.5 percentage points he won the state with. 

The first lady’s visit underscores the Biden campaign’s continued focus on Nevada. Vice President Kamala Harris has already visited Las Vegas twice this year; the president held a campaign rally in East Las Vegas in early February.

Her last visit to Nevada — other than a Lake Tahoe vacation last year — was a 2022 trip to Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno in her White House capacity to discuss workforce development.
