LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada Trump Victory, the campaign for re-electing President Donald Trump, and the Nevada Republican Party held a protest Thursday evening.
The group said they held the demonstration at the Grant Sawyer government building in response to Gov. Steve Sisolak's "attempt to shut down" the president's planned weekend events and "Attack on Republicans' First Amendment rights."
Gov. Sisolak said earlier this week on social media that his office has had no involvement or communication with the event organizers or potential hosts when it comes to the advertised campaign events.
A spokesperson from McCarran Airport also said their team had not received a request to use their facility for such an event, as of Thursday.
Congresswoman Dina Titus says the planned events are more of a safety issue instead of a political one but Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald says the state's COVID-19 protocols are selective.
Thursday, the group consisted of about 50 people with chants of "Four more years" and told 13 Action News that they would like to participate in the president's events in Nevada.
