GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be among the coterie of Donald Trump allies descending on northern Nevada this weekend for a fundraiser hosted by ex-Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt.

Laxalt, who unsuccessfully ran for governor last year, is hosting his Basque Fry fundraiser on Saturday. The event, which he's hosted annually since 2015, benefits his political action committee, Morning in Nevada PAC.

This year's gathering at a ranch in Gardnerville is slated to kick off Saturday. In addition to Mulvaney, Lewandowski and Zinke, the event will feature former acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, American Conservative Union chair Matt Schlapp, Trump adviser Mercedes Schlap and conservative journalist John Fund.

Laxalt, the grandson of former Nevada governor and U.S. Sen. Paul Laxalt, comes from a family of Basque immigrants who settled in Nevada.

Laxalt is also partnering with organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference, the largest annual gathering of conservatives, to host an offshoot event in the West called CPAC West, which kicked off Friday in Reno.

The daylong event is expected to include discussions about criminal justice reform, tax policy, China, abortion and gun rights, among other topics. The event will feature several Nevada Republican state lawmakers, along with U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez of Colorado and U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei of Nevada.
