Elizabeth Warren has scheduled a campaign event in Las Vegas this weekend as she begins to roll out her campaign for the presidency.

Warren, running for the Democratic ticket, will hold an organizing event on Sunday, Feb. 17, at Springs Preserve, according to her campaign.

Doors open at 2:30 p.m. and the event begins at 3 p.m. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is encouraged.

The U.S. Senator from Massachusetts formally announced she will run for the White House on Saturday. She joins a growing field that includes fellow senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar in the race for president against incumbent Donald Trump.

Nevada is a key battleground state for the Democratic nomination, with the state's caucus third in the 2020 caucus/primary schedule.
