Vice President Mike Pence is heading to Reno for a rally but doctors here in our state now asking him to cancel it.

More than 250 doctors from across the country, including many from Nevada, signed a letter asking him to make the change.

The doctors say rallies can become super-spreader events where people could get sick and eventually die.
