Cheney will be appearing at the Neil Road Recreation Center.
The Vice President was a frequent visitor to Nevada during last year's campaign. Despite Democratic efforts to turn Yucca Mountain into a pivotal issue, the subject was rarely mentioned at Republican rallies and the Bush-Cheney ticket took Nevada's 5 electoral votes. Today outside the hall where he will appear. It was as if the campaign continues. Cheney is coming to talk about Social Security, but Nevada Democrats led by former governor and U-S Senator Richard Bryan say he should answer some questions while he's here specifically about Yucca Mountain.
Bryan fought the Yucca Mountain Project as governor and Senator said the nuclear repository faces insurmountable problems which only deepened with last week's developments.
