Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Reno, Nevada this evening, the candidate’s second event of the day.
Trump will speak from the Reno-Sparks Convention Center beginning at 3:30 PM Pacific Time. The rally can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump is holding two back-to-back events in Nevada, with his previous stop taking place in Henderson at 11:30 a.m. It remains to be seen how many supporters will attend the event, but the arena Trump is speaking in holds about 6,500 people.
During these events, Trump is expected to praise his running mate, Mike Pence, for his performance in Tuesday’s vice presidential debate. The majority of polls, both online and scientific, showed voters believing Pence did a better job than his opponent, Tim Kaine. Based on Trump’s tweets last night, the Republican candidate may also get in an attack on debate moderator Elaine Quijano, who Trump felt should have stopped Kaine from interrupting so much.
If Trump does use this line of attack, it would be the second debate in a row that he followed up by criticizing the debate moderator. After the first presidential debate last week, Trump spent several days complaining about moderator Lester Holt and saying that the event was rigged against him, although he had said immediately after the debate ended that Holt had been extremely fair.
Trump is hoping to boost his poll numbers in Nevada, a state where Hillary Clinton is just barely leading. Real Clear Politics’ polling average has Clinton ahead of Trump by 0.6 points, with the most recent three polls all showing her ahead. Nevada voted for Barack Obama in 2012 and 2008, but before that, it went for George W. Bush in both the 2004 and 2000 elections. The state is worth six electoral votes.
