President Biden to make campaign stop in Historic Westside this weekend

Updated February 2, 2024 - 2:36 pm

President Joe Biden will headline a campaign event in the Historic Westside on Sunday, two days before he seeks Nevada Democrats’ nomination in the presidential preference primary.

The 46th president, who is likely to go up against former President Donald Trump in a rematch of the 2020 race, will arrive in Las Vegas on Sunday afternoon and will speak directly to voters about the stakes of the 2024 election, according to his campaign.

Biden will appear on the Democratic presidential primary ballot alongside author Marianne Williamson, entrepreneur Jason Palmer and others. Williamson and Palmer both have events in Las Vegas over the next few days, and independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will also hold a rally Sunday.

Last week, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump hosted a rally ahead of the Feb. 8 Nevada Republican Party caucuses, where he will appear on the ballot with fellow candidate Ryan Binkley.

Biden last visited Las Vegas in December when he touted the federal funding for the long-awaited high-speed rail system expected to be built between Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
