Heller's office confirmed Sunday that Trump will headline the event in Las Vegas. Tickets range from $15,000 to $50,000, according to an invitation obtained by the network.

Trump is also expected to speak to the Nevada State Republican Convention.


CNN first reported that Trump would headline the event in Las Vegas.

Heller is considered among the most vulnerable senators up for reelection in November. He will face Rep.

Trump previously made his mark on the Nevada Senate race when he urged Danny Tarkanian to drop his primary challenge to Heller and run for the House instead.

Tarkanian heeded Trump’s call, and is running to replace Rosen in November.

The trip to Nevada will mark the latest appearance Trump has made in support of Republican senate candidates.

He has previously held rallies in Tennessee and Indiana in support of candidates there, and will held an event in Minnesota on Wednesday, where two senators are up for reelection.
