President Joe Biden will visit Las Vegas next weekend ahead of the Nevada presidential primary.

The 46th president will be in Nevada on Feb. 4 and Feb. 5 to gear up for the presidential primary scheduled for Feb. 6, according to his campaign.

Details on the president’s visit have not been confirmed.

Biden is vying for the Democratic nomination in Nevada with other candidates, including self-help author Marianne Williamson.

Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Daniele Monroe-Moreno welcomed Biden’s visit and said in a statement the Silver State Democrats are excited to help re-elect Biden.

“Nevada Democrats are standing in solidarity with President Biden because of his strong record of fighting to lower costs, protecting our democracy, and standing up to MAGA Republicans working to ban abortion nationwide and take away Nevadans’ reproductive freedom,” she said in a statement.”
