LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential hopefuls Herman Cain and Gary Johnson are attending a conservative conference focusing on anti-tax advocates in Las Vegas.

Cain and Johnson are joining more than a dozen Republican leaders for the annual Conservative Leadership Conference Saturday near the Las Vegas Strip.

Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, GOP Congressman Joe Heck and Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County are among those scheduled to speak at the all-day conference.

Conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart will give the keynote address.

Breitbart recently made headlines for sharing lewd photographs that resulted in the resignation of New York Democrat Anthony Weiner from the U.S. House.
