VP Harris to visit Las Vegas this weekend

Updated January 23, 2024 - 7:00 pm

Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Las Vegas on Saturday ahead of the upcoming presidential primary.

In her official capacity as vice president, Harris will deliver remarks at an event with Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev., although those details are still being finalized.

She also will speak at an early-vote campaign event Saturday, which marks the first day of early voting for the Feb. 6 presidential preference primary, when Democratic voters will choose whether to nominate President Joe Biden as the Democratic candidate for the 2024 presidential election.

The Saturday visit will mark her 10th trip to the Silver State since being sworn in as vice president. Less than a month ago, Harris visited the city to congratulate the Culinary Local 226 on its collective bargaining and touted the importance of organized labor.

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will also be in Las Vegas on Saturday for a rally ahead of the Nevada GOP’s presidential caucuses, set for Feb. 8.
