It was a family affair for the Trumps in the closing days of the campaign as Donald Trump Jr. made a campaign stop in Las Vegas to urge voters to support his dad for president.

Trump Jr. spoke at Ahern Manufacturing on Bonanza Road, encouraging supporters to vote early.  He touted Ahern as a example on a business success story and argued that his father's business experience better qualified him for the White House than Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr. also responded to Clinton calling Trump supporters "deplorable." 

He joked that "if you're conservative, you're evil, the devil, all of the above."  

After the event, fans rushed to take selfies with Trump Jr., and instead of saying "cheese," they said "deplorable."

The campaign stop comes with just a day left for Nevadans to early vote before Election Day.  Several Trump supporters we spoke with said they had already cast their ballots for Trump and other Republican candidates.

"It's time to drain the swamp," said Trump early voter Sandy Steinbeck. "I'm tired of the corruption."

Steinbeck said she enjoyed hearing from Trump Jr. and says she's also watched Eric Trump speak in Pahrump. Others said they were impressed and  hoped Trump Jr. would also run for office in the future.
