All roads lead to Las Vegas in the 2020 presidential campaign, so it makes sense that Students for Trump would want to hold its kickoff here.

Who doesn't want to party in Las Vegas, right? The controversy-courting college campus activist group will surely be doing some of that on Aug. 23 when it converges on the Palms Casino and Resort.

It's another reminder of the outsized political importance of Nevada, competitive turf that Hillary Clinton won by just 2.4 percent in 2016. The Strip is an essential ATM stop for candidates, and the Silver State is "first in the West" for caucusing Democrats.
