CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Republicans are gathering for their party convention in Las Vegas this weekend.

Party leaders are seeking to show unity to boost voter registration, raise money and elect more GOP candidates. The goals that have proved elusive in recent years for a state party that has become known for its volatility.

The attempt at cohesion amid the polarization between staunch conservatives and establishment Republicans - a split that also divides the party nationally - comes in the spotlight of midterm elections and an attempt to host the national convention in 2016.

Party leaders would rather not air their political laundry publicly, but such infighting is expected at state conventions - especially in Nevada.

The party may battle over its platform, debating taxes, primary endorsements, gay marriage and abortion.
