LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – It wasn’t opportunity knocking on the door for many Las Vegas residents, but candidates for mayor during the first week of early voting.

8 News Now reached out to five campaigns for the Las Vegas mayoral race, requesting photos and an update on what their candidate did this past week to reach out to voters.

Shelley Berkley started the week by attending three separate Memorial Day events at Woodland Memorial, Southern Nevada Veterans Cemetery, and Palm Mortuary meeting with Las Vegas veteran’s families.

She met with voters during a Taco Tuesday event at Guero’s, the 8 News Now March Madness Best Taco Champion, and appealed to voters during a local podcast.

Bob Horton, head of the Ironworkers Union, met with the mayoral candidate this week extending the union’s endorsement to Berkley.
