Vice President Pence to attend Las Vegas events Friday for Heller, Laxalt

Posted at 9:56 AM, Sep 04, 2018

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.
