Sandoval travels to Canada on economic development mission

Gov. Brian Sandoval is in Canada for a series of economic development meetings, his office said today.

Sandoval, whom polls show is the most popular politician in the state, left Monday in the early afternoon and will return Wednesday.

The Republican governor will not be at a rally with presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Wednesday, according to a Romney campaign official. Nor was he available to help rally supporters with Romney today in Henderson.

While Sandoval is out of the state, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki becomes acting governor. Krolicki attended today's Romney rally, along with Sen. Dean Heller and Rep. Joe Heck.

This is Sandoval's second official trip abroad in two months. In September, he led a trade mission to China and South Korea.
