The two leading Nevada Democrats running for governor are scheduled to appear at a Douglas County Democratic Party fundraiser in Minden next month.

Party officials said Thursday Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani and Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak both will give keynote speeches at the "Blue Stars Rising Dinner 2018" at the Carson Valley Inn on Feb. 17. Tickets cost $65.

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt and state Treasurer Dan Schwartz are considered the front-runners for the GOP nomination for the seat being vacated by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, who's being term-limited out.

Other Democrats scheduled to appear at the Douglas County event include former state Treasurer Kate Marshall, who's running for lieutenant governor, and state Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford, who has announced his candidacy for attorney general.
