LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz will be in Nevada on Wednesday to speak at a software company's conference in Las Vegas.

Schultz is considering an independent bid for president and launched a tour in January for his latest book, "From the Ground Up."

The Brooklyn-born billionaire will speak at the conference for company Epicor Wednesday morning at the Mandalay Bay casino-resort.

Schultz was planning to hold a town hall in the Las Vegas community of Summerlin in the afternoon but has postponed the event.
