Candidates speak after Nevada caucus

Posted at 10:27 PM, Feb 23, 2016

A couple of the Republican presidential candidates appeared at local events around the valley after the caucus on Tuesday.

Donald Trump was the first to take the stage at Treasure Island. Many people waited more than two hours for Trump to arrive. During his speech, Trump made it clear that his third straight win was a sign of things to come.

Trump also talked about how early results showed that 46 percent of the Hispanic voters supported him in the caucus.
 

Trump's speech lasted about 10 minutes and he did not attack Cruz or Rubio directly.

Ted Cruz spoke at the Bill and Lilly Heinrich YMCA near Valley View Boulevard and Meadows Lane. Despite the fact that he came in third, Cruz seemed to be very optimistic. He was joined on stage by the lieutenant governor from Texas, Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt and Glen Beck. Cruz thanked his Nevada supporters and even congratulated Donald Trump.
