Obama to speak at Doolittle Park on Wednesday night

Doolittle Park

President Barack Obama will rally supporters at Doolittle Park in Las Vegas about 9:35 p.m. Wednesday night.

The stop is part of Obama’s 48-hour campaign tour of battleground states, including Iowa, Colorado and Florida.

The rally comes in the middle of Nevada’s two-week early-voting period and likely will focus on getting voters to the polls.

Crowd entry for the rally will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are available through Tuesday and can be picked up at the following locations:

Pearson Community Center, 1625 W. Carey Avenue; East Las Vegas Community Center, 250 N. Eastern Avenue; Lone Mountain Plaza, northwest corner of W. Lone Mountain and N. Decatur Blvd.; Nellis Shopping Center, 1200 S. Nellis Blvd.; and the Arroyo Market Square, Interstate 215 and Rainbow.

  1. I hope he lands at Nellis AFB again instead of McCarran, It helps with the traffic.

  2. This is a powerful show of support by the President for the African America, Hispanic, and Caucasain community. All which are a part of what many call the Westside of Las Vegas.

  3. After reading the post to this article, it is clear many on here are misguided, having severe bias, are prejudice, and could be called racist.

    Historically, I think this is a first for an American President to visit the Westside of Las Vegas, Nevada.

    If anyone does not knows the history of the Westside, the Westside of Las Vegas has changed. White, Blacks and Hispanics, can be seen anytime of day or evening walking up or down Martin Luther. Many are going to Mario's or to the Bus Stop, or to one of the Andre Agassi buildings.

    Just to be clear, all is not good on the Westside of Las Vegas, but change is happening, and happening for the better of all you live in the area.

    The Westside of Las Vegas is a model of diversity. Economics is the leading indicator of this change.

    Some of you who are stuck in a time warp, or a bubble, or just refuse to be a part of the large piece of humanity, cannot deny this change.

    If your not ready, you better keep ready. Because it's coming! Soon this will be at your door step.
