Republican presidential hopefuls will appear at the “First in the West” Presidential Roundup in late August. The Nevada Republican Alliance is hosting the event at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys. The roundup is a time where thousands of visitors are expected to express their preference for a Republican nomination for president in 2016. Among those invited include Florida Governor Jeb Bush, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz. The alliance is calling it the “largest straw poll” of the entire election season with the results expected to go national.
