SHARE NOW

(The Center Square) – Former President Donald Trump is coming to Las Vegas.

The presumptive GOP nominee will hold a rally Sunday at Sunset Park. The event begins at noon, but doors open at 9 a.m.

Tickets are required and attendees can register for tickets online.

According to National Review, co-hosts include Nevada Republican Club president Pauline Lee, Ahern Luxury Boutique Hotel president Shane McFarland, and Ahern Rentals CEO Don Ahern. Organizers are hoping to raise $15 million.

Trump does seem to have the support of voters in Nevada.The former president is leading President Joe Biden in 4 out of 5 recent polls. The two leaders are tied in a Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll.

As The Center Square reported in May, Trump is beating Biden 40% to 28% in Clark County, 39% to 30% in Washoe County, and 53% to 20% in rural areas. In terms of race/ethnicity, Trump is leading Biden among White, Hispanic, and ‘Other’ voters with Trump at 47%, 37%, and 31% support respectively, compared to Biden’s 30%, 26%, 22%, respectively.

The economy appears to be a factor for voters. 32-year-old Jacob Sprague of Reno told The New York Times that it’s “concerning” how the White House keeps saying the economy is good.

“That’s weird because I’m paying more on taxes and more on groceriesand more on housingand more on fuel,” said Sprague. “So, that doesn’t feel good.”

Meanwhile, Robert Kennedy Jr is trying to get on the presidential ballot in Nevada. The independent candidate recently filed a lawsuit against the Nevada Secretary of State for what Kennedy calls a “reinterpretation” of ballot access rules in Nevada.
