The campaign to push New York real-estate mogul and reality-show host Donald Trump to run for president is holding areception in Las Vegas (where else?) on Thursday that is slated to be hosted by several GOP groups.


The event, sponsored by Spring Mountain Republican Women, Active Republican Women of Las Vegas, Southern Hills Republican Women and Draft Trump 2012 is drawing comparisons to the Donald and other Republican television-star-turned-political-star, President Ronald Reagan.

Titled from “Ronald to Donald” the poster for the event issues the call to “bring back the Reagan revolution.”

Nevada is also an interesting spot for the event. It’s considered vital for former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to gain some traction in the state in order for him to keep his front runner status.

UPDATE (from Liz B): A reader reminds me that Trump is scheduled to be in Vegas over the weekend to attend the lavish marriage of Steve Wynn to British divorcee Andrea Hissom. The event is reportedly to span several days, and will rival the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
