LAS VEGAS (AP) - More than 3,000 Republicans are meeting in Las
Vegas for the Clark County GOP convention.
The group will elect delegates to the state convention in April.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won a majority of Republicans' support at the precinct caucus in January. But the party is expected to fall in line behind its nominee for president, Arizona Sen. John McCain.
Gov. Jim Gibbons had been neutral in the race. He said Saturday he was "100 percent" behind McCain.
Nevada Sen. John Ensign was scheduled to address the convention
later in the day.
