After setting up an impressive team of Nevada veterans, including some noteworthy Hispanic operatives, Hillary Clinton arrived in May to lay down a marker on immigration reform.
More voters registered in Nevada last year than in 2007 and 2011 combined, indicating a heightened level of activism as the caucuses and elections loom.
MSNBC and Telemundo will co-host a town hall with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in Las Vegas on Feb. 18, two days before Nevada Democrats hold presidential caucuses, I've confirmed.

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve, a nonpartisan who rarely endorses, has embraced her longtime friend, Devon Reese, the Democratic attorney seeking Greg Brower's state Senate seat.
