At long last, Nevada gets moment in political spotlight

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

After waiting on the sidelines during the early presidential contests, Nevada is ready for its moment in the spotlight.

It will be brief -- Tuesday through Saturday's caucus -- but the calendar is filling up with events starring the four remaining Republican presidential candidates.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum will arrive Tuesday and visit the Tea Party and Republicans Uniting Nevada Conservatives (TRUNC) office at Lake Mead and Jones boulevards.

The event begins at 4:30 p.m. and will be followed by a Florida primary election results party at Santorum's campaign office at Charleston Boulevard and Durango Drive.

Like Santorum, Texas Rep. Ron Paul will arrive in Nevada Tuesday by way of Colorado.

He'll hold a "Campaign Call to Arms" at 5:30 p.m. inside the Estancia Ballroom at Green Valley Ranch.

Paul is scheduled to host five events in the Las Vegas area on Wednesday, before spending Thursday in northern Nevada. He'll return Friday for events in Pahrump and Las Vegas.

Mitt Romney, who won the state's caucus in 2008, will arrive on Wednesday for an event at Brady Industries on Lindell Road.

His chief rival, Newt Gingrich, is scheduled to arrive in Nevada the same day and hold events in Reno and Carson City before heading to Las Vegas.

FOX5 wants to know what you think about the candidates and the caucus.
