CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is planning to visit Nevada at the end of the month to celebrate his birthday with the star of the TV show “Pawn Stars.”

A fundraising reception for the Florida senator is scheduled for May 28 at the Las Vegas home of Rick Harrison, who co-owns the famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop.

The event is co-hosted by Nevada Lt. Gov. Mark Hutchison, who is chairing Rubio’s campaign operations in Nevada.

Rubio has roots in Nevada after spending some of his childhood in Las Vegas. He is also the cousin of Democratic Nevada state Sen. Mo Denis.

He’s the latest presidential candidate or potential candidate to visit Nevada this month. Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republicans Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum and Ben Carson visited in May.
