Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is scheduled to visit Nevada this week as he gears up for a possible presidential bid in 2016.
The Republican lawmaker is planning to visit Las Vegas on Friday evening and Saturday morning, although campaign staffers haven’t provided his itinerary for that stop.
He’ll then head up to northern Nevada, where’s he’s hosting a gathering at Campo restaurant in Reno on Saturday afternoon. Tickets for that cost $25 a person, or $250 for sponsor status.
He’s headlining a private dinner at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort on Saturday evening. Tickets start at $500 and go up to $2,600.
Paul is widely expected to enter the presidential race next year, although his wife told reporters last week that they’re not 100 percent sure about a run.
