Hillary Clinton's top campaign aides in Nevada

Hillary Clinton's top campaign aides, including her campaign manager, are in Nevada this week to meet with supporters,  community leaders and reporters, yet another sign that the Silver State is critical to the presumptive Democratic nominee's strategy.

Robby Mook, who ran Clinton's 2008 effort in Nevada, is here along with Marlon Marshall, who is overseeing  all of her state campaigns. They were in Reno on Monday evening meeting with Obama and Clinton backers from '08. They plan to be in Carson City today and will also travel to Las Vegas.

Their visit comes after the candidate made national news this month and laid down a marker for her White House race on immigration in a Las Vegas stop during which she indicated she would go further than the president on immigration reform.

Mook's return coincides with the assembling of a team that helped Clinton win Nevada by 5 points over Obama in the 2008 caucus (he eventually won the delegate fight, 13-12), including new state director Emmy Ruiz, who worked for the president here in 2012.
