Vice President Mike Pence will be in Nevada this weekend to rally voters for Republicans Sen. Dean Heller, Attorney General Adam Laxalt and Cresent Hardy. 

Pence's event with Hardy will be in Las Vegas at noon Saturday at The Venetian hotel-casino. Those interested in going can RSVP here. Hardy is the Republican nominee for Nevada Congressional District 4.

The rally with Pence in Carson City will follow the Nevada Day parade and other activities commemorating Nevada's admission to statehood in 1864. The rally comes halfway through a two-week early voting period where more than half of all voters are expected to cast ballots.

Heller is in a tight re-election battle against Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen and is the only GOP senator seeking re-election in a state Democrat Hillary Clinton carried in 2016.

Laxalt is in a tight race for governor against Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak.

Pence's visit follows a rally that President Donald Trump held in the northern rural city of Elko last weekend.
