LAS VEGAS (AP) – Some of the action before the third and final debate was happening away from the UNLV campus that is playing host to the televised event.

On Wednesday afternoon several taco trucks lined up outside the Trump Hotel, about three miles from the campus and just off the Las Vegas Strip. The food trucks joined Grammy Award-winning band Los Tigres Del Norte, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, progressive groups and union members to rally against the GOP candidate and to protest a fight over organizing the hotel’s workforce.

In September, Marco Gutierrez, founder of the group Latinos for Trump, said if something was not done about his own “very dominant” culture, “you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”

On Tuesday the trucks fanned out across the city to register voters.
