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

LAS VEGAS (AP) - 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 will visit Nellis Air Force Base, tour the facility, and deliver remarks to airmen and veterans. Following, the Vice President will participate in a Republican Governors Association event.   

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.
