Potential GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and Fox News talk show host, will be the dinner speaker at the March 28 Nevada Republican Party’s Central Committee meeting in Carson City.
Huckabee ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2008 and recently ended his talk show so he could explore a White House run in 2016.
Huckabee will be the latest possible GOP presidential hopeful to visit Nevada, one of four early voting states following the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. Other likely Republican White House candidates who have come to Las Vegas recently include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky.
The meeting will be held at the Silver State Charter School conference center, starting at 9 a.m. Huckabee will speak at 6:30 p.m.
