LAS VEGAS — Nevada Republicans are debating whether to bow to national pressure and delay the state's presidential nomination contest.

More than 200 of the party's top volunteers and leaders are meeting in Las Vegas Saturday to decide when Nevada's caucuses should be held.

New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner has threatened to hold that state's primary in early December to avoid wedging it between the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses and Nevada's Jan. 14 contest.

Several Republican presidential candidates have said they will boycott Nevada's contest if it isn't pushed back, prompting the Republican National Committee to suggest Thursday that Nevada move to Feb. 4.

Nevada GOP leaders have signaled that they support the change, but it's unclear whether rank-and-file members will agree to it.
