Nevada's rising political prominence is attracting more visits from the president, vice president and other high-profile political figures that are driving up costs for state troopers assigned to help protect them while they're in the state. It's expected to be even more costly next year, with Trump's re-election campaign targeting swing-state Nevada and a crowded field of Democrats who might start receiving protection as they barnstorm the state.
