Warren postpones Nevada visit amid government shutdown deal

January 25, 2019

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is canceling a Friday night visit to Nevada after President Donald Trump agreed to a deal Friday to reopen the government for three weeks.

Warren instead planned to remain in Washington, D.C. as Congress was expected to vote on the plan.

She was expected to be the third potential Democratic 2020 candidate to hold public events in early-state Nevada this year.

Former Obama housing chief Julian Castro, who has jumped in the race, visited Las Vegas earlier this month. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who says he’s weighing a bid, met with Nevada progressives and Democrats two weeks ago.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, who is also eyeing a potential White House run, says he plans to visit Nevada in the coming weeks.
