LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Latest on the political campaigns in Nevada (all times local):

3:30 p.m.

President Donald Trump’s eldest son will be campaigning across Nevada on Friday for Republican candidates.

Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, are scheduled to rally with GOP Sen. Dean Heller and Adam Laxalt in Carson City in the morning followed by a rally in Reno a few hours later.

The younger Trump and Guilfoyle will then rally with Laxalt and GOP candidate for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District Cresent Hardy in Pahrump.

They’ll end the night in Las Vegas at a rally with Danny Tarkanian. Tarkanian is running in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District.


12:15 p.m.

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris is coming to northern Nevada to campaign with U.S. Senate candidate Jacky Rosen and other top Democrats at a pair of get-out-the-vote rallies in Reno and Sparks.

Harris plans to join Rosen, lieutenant governor candidate Kate Marshall and others at a rally at the state Democratic field office in Sparks at 3:15 p.m. on Thursday.

She’s scheduled to appear at an event targeting women in Reno at 7:15 p.m. Thursday with Rosen, Democratic state controller candidate Catherine Byrne and Patricia Gallimore, president of the Reno/Sparks NAACP.

Rosen is trying to knock off GOP Sen. Dean Heller.

Harris is among a large group of Democrats who are contemplating a 2020 challenge to President Donald Trump. She’s received increased attention in recent weeks for her visible role on the Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.


8:50 a.m.

Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel and singer Brandon Flowers of the Las Vegas-based band The Killers will headline a Friday night rally for U.S. Senate candidate Jacky Rosen in Las Vegas.

The Democrat’s campaign said Wednesday that Democratic U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Democratic candidate for Nevada governor Steve Sisolak will also appear at the health care-focused event at a downtown art walk.

Rosen is in a tight race challenging incumbent Republican Sen. Dean Heller who has faced backlash for holding up GOP plans to repeal President Barack Obama’s health law before backing other repeal plans that failed.

Kimmel grew up in Las Vegas and has used his show to speak out against congressional attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

The rally will be open to the public.
