Six presidential hopefuls will return to the Las Vegas area this week, as the contest to decide the next Democratic nominee shifts to Nevada.
Sens. Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren, businessman Tom Steyer, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Vice President Joe Biden will each host events over the next week.
Top-level surrogates will also appear alongside their chosen candidates, including Capt. “Sully” Sullenberger, who will formally endorse Biden at his Henderson event on Friday. According to Biden’s campaign, this will be the first time Sullenberger, known for a 2009 heroic emergency jet landing on the Hudson River, publicly participates in a political event.
