RENO (AP) — Beto O'Rourke is the latest Democratic presidential candidate to bring his campaign to Nevada.

The former Texas congressman plans a town hall meeting Thursday morning with the UNR Young Democrats at a coffee shop near the University of Nevada, Reno. He's scheduled an afternoon town hall at a Carson City restaurant.

The former El Paso city councilman made his first trip to the early caucus state last month with stops in Las Vegas. He's headed back there Friday for events with the UNLV Young Democrats in Las Vegas and at a brewery in neighboring Henderson.

Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker have campaigned in northern Nevada in recent weeks. Nevada's caucuses next February are third in the presidential selection process following New Hampshire and Iowa.
