4 Presidential Hopefuls in Nevada this Weekend

Four presidential candidates will be making stops in Nevada this weekend.

Republican Sen. John McCain will be in Elko on Saturday, with a rally on the courthouse steps scheduled for 10 a.m. McCain officially kicked off his presidential bid Wednesday in New Hampshire.

Democrats U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton and former Sen. John Edwards will be in Reno on Sunday, but will not address the Nevada State Education Association convention as previously planned.

Officials with the teachers' union said with association elections to be held that day and a speech by the president of the national group, there was not enough time for the candidates.

Clinton plans to hold a town hall meeting at Hug High School at 11 a.m. Sunday. Edwards will attend a private fundraiser in Reno, then travel to Las Vegas for a town hall meeting there Monday, according to their campaigns.

Another Democratic candidate, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, is scheduled to speak Sunday night at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Carson City. On Monday, he will meet with some state lawmakers, union leaders and supporters before traveling to Las Vegas.
