Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton is appealing to Nevada's Hispanic community to back her potentially history-making candidacy.
Clinton asked people to help her reach a common purpose at a rally in Las Vegas today. Clinton appeared with former Cabinet secretary Henry Cisneros and New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez.
From Las Vegas she went to Reno for a roundable on the foreclosure crisis.
Clinton's advisers and supporters have emphasized that her campaign could make history while working to not alienate minority voters who might be tempted to vote for her rival Barack Obama, who could be the first black president.
Clinton was scheduled late Saturday to fly to South Carolina.
