We simply relocated from one house to another."

He further elaborated on the appeal of Las Vegas, stating, "Las Vegas is often associated with the Strip, but there are numerous wonderful communities in Nevada. I reside in a faith-based community with excellent schools. Las Vegas encompasses a multitude of attractions beyond the renowned Strip."
