Originally, Berkley was not planning to attend, a decision that generated a bit of sniping between surrogates for the two Senate candidates.
Berkley's campaign told the Reno Gazette-Journal last week that she would not appear at the summit because she was not granted a speaking role.
After the report by the Reno newspaper, however, campaign spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa said supporters near the lake asked Berkley to attend anyway.
"A number of Tahoe supporters have reached out to make clear that they are deeply disappointed that Congresswoman Berkley has not been afforded the opportunity to address the summit, but that they are eager to sit down with her to discuss how to protect this national treasure," Hinojosa said in a Friday email.
"Shelley Berkley is a longtime advocate for Lake Tahoe and, while it's unfortunate that she is not permitted to participate, she is looking forward to attending the conference as a guest of several local advocates," Hinojosa added.
Stewart Bybee, Heller's Senate communications director, said the Berkley camp's account of events is bogus.
"Congresswoman Berkley was sent an invitation to the Tahoe Summit several weeks ago. She did not express interest in attending the event, nor did the Congresswoman formally request to speak at the Summit," Bybee said in an email.
