<p>ARLINGTON, VA - AUGUST 09: U.S. Vice President Mike Pence announces the Trump Administration's plan to create the U.S. Space Force by 2020 during a speech at the Pentagon August 9, 2018 in Arlington, Virginia. Describing space as adversarial and crowded and citing threats from China and Russia, Pence said the new Space Force would be a separate, sixth branch of the military.</p>
Vice President Mike Pence will be in Las Vegas on Friday to attend a fundraiser benefiting Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt and a veterans' event with GOP Sen. Dean Heller.
The vice president's office confirmed the events Tuesday.
A message seeking details from Heller's office was not immediately returned.
Heller is the only Republican senator seeking re-election this year in a state that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016. He's made veterans' issues a centerpiece of his campaign.
Laxalt is Nevada's attorney general. His campaign did not immediately have details about the fundraiser to share.
Pence was scheduled to attend a fundraiser for Heller in April but canceled when he instead filled in for President Donald Trump at a summit in South America.
