Barbour to meet with Republican leaders in Nevada

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, who's readying for a possible presidential run, will meet with Republican leaders Tuesday in the early caucus state of Nevada.

Barbour's political action committee says he will meet with Gov. Brian Sandoval, Nevada legislators and other GOP leaders in Carson City.

Nevada's Feb. 18 caucus puts it behind only Iowa and New Hampshire in early contests to determine parties' 2012 presidential nominees.

Barbour has said he'll announce in April whether he'll enter the GOP presidential primary.

He spoke Saturday at the California Republican convention and last week in Chicago.

Barbour has also traveled in recent weeks to the early caucus or primary states of Iowa and South Carolina. He went to Israel in February on a trip sponsored by the Republican Jewish Coalition.
