HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence touted Donald Trump as a champion for the Constitution and decried Clinton as the epitome of establishment politics in a Henderson campaign rally.

The Indiana governor held a town hall-style event Wednesday at the Henderson Convention Center after visiting with the city's police.

Speakers who introduced him included Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, congressional candidate Danny Tarkanian and Assemblyman Chris Edwards.

Progressive groups protesting the event included environment-focused advocacy group Next Gen Climate and the abortion rights group NARAL.

Hillary Clinton's campaign announced a series of phone bank events to coincide with the visit.

Pence came to Nevada earlier this month to hold rallies in Carson City and Reno.

Trump himself is scheduled to attend a fundraiser at Lake Tahoe later this month.
