LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is expected to spend his 44th birthday paying a campaign visit to the most famous pawn shop in Las Vegas.
The Florida senator's Thursday afternoon appearance at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on Las Vegas Boulevard, a working backdrop for hit reality-TV show "Pawn Stars," is Rubio's first campaign stop in Nevada since announcing he would run.
The 2 p.m. visit with shop co-owner Rick Harrison will be followed by a fundraiser at Harrison's home.
Rubio is scheduled to talk with tech startups on Friday morning at Nevada's Switch Innevation Center before traveling to Reno for an afternoon event with GOP activists at a lobbyist's lakeside home.
Rubio's visit is latest of several Nevada campaign appearances by potential or official presidential candidates in May.
