Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is set to give his first State of the State address on Wednesday night in Carson City. 

His address is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. and will be aired live on 2 News, along with the Republican response. As a result, there will be no CBS Evening News with Jeff Glor.

Sisolak is the first Democratic Governor in Nevada in nearly two decades - and was sworn in last week. 

Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asked President Trump to reschedule the State of the Union Address until after the federal government reopens.

The White House hasn't immediately responded to her request.
