Obama plans campaign stop Wednesday in Las Vegas


Steve Marcus

President Barack Obama greets supporters as he arrives for a rally at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012.

President Barack Obama will make his seventh trip to Nevada this year, and his second official campaign stop in the Silver State in less than a month, next week when he visits Las Vegas.

The Obama campaign this afternoon announced Obama would speak at a grassroots event Wednesday. The following day, he’ll be in the Denver area to deliver remarks at another campaign event.

Details on the president’s events in Las Vegas and the Denver area are forthcoming, the campaign said.

The president’s most recent trip to the Las Vegas Valley was on Aug. 22 when he had a campaign rally at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas. The previous day Obama spoke at a rally in Reno.

  1. Is this a stop to bad mouth Las Vegas again...this time in person?

  2. @Go-Rebels and Goo Goo Doll:

    Get over it already. Look in your own backyard on why Vegas isn't doing well. Blame your OWN State politicians, not the President. Educate your children so non-gaming companies will WANT to move to Vegas and Nevada to improve the employment and economy. Can't continue to depend on casinos and tourism 100%. Diversification- a word the NV politicans just don't get. It's not up to the federal government to bail you out for things that can be fixed right at home.

  3. It good President Obama is coming to Las Vegas. The Democrats convention was a success. The information giving during the convention was helpful to undecided independent voters. The President should see a bump in the national polls. More importantly, agree or disagree, the Democrats made clear their message to the America public.

    The 6 to 8 percent of the voters President Obama targeted, are most likely to side with the President come November...independent voters!

  4. Who pays for the use of Air Force One and the cargo plane that carries his limo, helicopter, and Secret Service personnel? I thought the use of this equipment was only for official purposes.

  5. Bob Realist...

    It would be helpful to your cause if you could get your fellow commenters to quite repeating the same old tired, laughable propaganda, like, 'Obummer told everyone not to go to Las Vegas!', and 'he's a Muslim!', and 'he ain't shown us his birth certificate!' and 'he's a closeted homosexual!' and ...
    well, you get the idea;
    Maybe they all read the 'Chattanooga Times-Free Press' Editorial columns, too.

    Then Mitt Romney's and Paul Ryan's Secret Service detail should also be discontinued. Why should we taxpayers pay for security for two "wannabes"?

  7. Det...Munch

    My comment was only about the cost of using taxpayer owned equipment for campaign purposes, not the Secret Service. Incumbents have a huge financial advantage over their opponents by such free usage of government aircraft during campaigns.
