The Nevada Independent: Warren to speak at Nevada Democratic party convention in Reno in June

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will deliver the keynote address at the Nevada State Democratic Party Convention in Reno at the end of June.

The Massachusetts senator will address Nevada Democrats the morning of June 23 at the Grand Sierra Resort. She is then expected to attend a campaign event with Rep. Jacky Rosen later that morning before flying to Las Vegas in the afternoon to join U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto at an event benefiting the state party.

It’s not the first time Warren has traveled to Nevada to rally the Democratic troops. She hosted a rally for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Cortez Masto at Springs Preserve in Las Vegas in 2016 and later stumped in Reno and Carson City for the two women.

It has been widely speculated that Warren’s aspirations include a run for the White House in 2020, although she has attempted to tamp down such suggestions. She told NBC’s Chuck Todd in March that she is not running for president but wouldn’t commit to serving out all six years of her term if she is re-elected in 2018.

“I am in this fight to retain my Senate seat in 2018. That’s where I’m focused,” Warren told Todd. “That’s where I’m going to stay focused. I’m not running for president.”
