High-profile surrogates rally for Nevada candidates

October 30, 2018

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The final push for early voting is drawing high-profile surrogates to Nevada to rally with Democratic and Republican candidates.

President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, attended a get-out-the-vote rally Monday in Las Vegas with Republican Cresent Hardy, a former congressman making another run for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District.

The president’s son tells KVVU-TV the country “is doing phenomenally well” and Republicans want “to see that continue.”

Meanwhile, former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii campaigned with Democratic candidates.

The women appeared at events with Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District candidate Susie Lee and U.S. Rep. Jacky Rosen, who is trying to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller.

Hirono says Heller “is not for the people of Nevada.”

Rosen’s race is considered one of Democrats’ best chances to flip a seat.
