Warren returns to Nevada, heart of 2008 economic crisis

Warren returns to Nevada, heart of 2008 economic crisis

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Democrat Elizabeth Warren, who made her name as a consumer advocate in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, will make her first appearance Sunday as a presidential candidate in Las Vegas, the boom-and-bust town that made Nevada the epicenter of the country's foreclosure crisis.

The Las Vegas economy is booming now but growing unease about a potential slump, rising home prices and a shortage of affordable housing may create a welcome audience for the Massachusetts senator's message of economic populism.

Former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid says that while he's not endorsing Warren, she'll have a leg up on other candidates who were not as involved in the issue.

Warren's visit sets off a spate of 2020 contenders coming to Nevada — a key caucus state.
