LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Nevada next month, adding it to the roster of early-voting states she is visiting at the beginning of her presidential campaign.

A campaign official said the former secretary of state will visit Nevada on May 5. Her events will be similar to the small-scale sessions with voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. The official did not provide any more details of the Nevada events.

Nevada's caucuses are held early in the presidential nominating calendar, and like Iowa and New Hampshire it is expected to be a hotly-contested battleground state in the general election.

Clinton's Nevada stop comes the day before she begins a three-day fundraising swing through California.

Clinton, the expected Democratic presidential nominee, traveled through Iowa and New Hampshire in a van and held small question-and-answer sessions with voters in those states earlier this month.
