Trump, Pence returning to Nevada next month to speak at Republican Jewish Coalition event
President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are scheduled to return to Nevada next month to attend a Republican Jewish Coalition conference in Las Vegas.
The conference, which is scheduled for the weekend of April 6, will mark Trump and Pence’s first visit to the state since the 2018 midterm elections, which saw Democrats knock off Republican Sen. Dean Heller and sweep most major offices.
The stop will be Trump’s fifth public visit to the state since the 2016 election; including an American Legion conference in August 2017 in Reno, a Nevada Republican Party Convention in Las Vegas in June 2018 and separate rallies for Heller and other Republican candidates in Las Vegas in September 2018 and in Elko in October 2018.
Pence also made several stops in Nevada in 2018, including speaking at campaign rallies for Heller and several congressional candidates including former Rep. Cresent Hardy.
The Republican Jewish Coalition was founded in 1985. Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson, a major donor to Trump and the Republican Party, has been a major player for decades.
Trump lost Nevada to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, losing by about 2 percentage points.
The Nevada Independent is raising $200,000 by Dec. 31 to support coverage of the 2024 election.
