U.S. Sen. Cory Booker is scheduled to return to Nevada for his second visit following his presidential campaign launch in February. 

Booker is starting his trip in Clark County Thursday to host a meet in greet at UNLV.

Then, he will journey up north to host events in Douglas County and Washoe County on Friday.

Saturday, Booker heads back to Southern Nevada for a variety of appearances in Clark County including dinner with the Asian American Pacific Islander community and an event at a local barbershop.

In his first trip to Las Vegas in February, Booker talked about criminal justice reform, the need for universal preschool and the importance of uniting the country.

Michael Lyle (MJ to some) has been a journalist in Las Vegas for eight years.  He started his career at View Neighborhood News, the community edition of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. During his seven years with the R-J, he won several first place awards from the Nevada Press Association and was named its 2011 Journalist of Merit. He left the paper in 2017 and spent a year as a freelance journalist accumulating bylines anywhere from The Washington Post to Desert Companion. While he covers a range of topics from homelessness to the criminal justice system, he gravitates toward stories about race relations and LGBTQ issues. Born and mostly raised in Las Vegas, Lyle graduated from UNLV with a degree in Journalism and Media Studies. He is currently working on his master's in Communications through an online program at Syracuse University. In his spare time, Lyle cooks through Ina Garten recipes in hopes of one day becoming the successor to the Barefoot Contessa throne. When he isn’t cooking (or eating), he also enjoys reading, running and re-watching episodes of “Parks and Recreation.” He is also in the process of learning kickboxing.
