Obama Returning To Nevada

Visit announced the day after GOP Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan's stop in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — President Barack Obama is making another visit to Nevada, with stops in the north and the south set for next week.

The White House confirmed the president would be in Reno on Tuesday and Las Vegas on Wednesday.

No other details about the trip were available.

Obama has made several visits to Nevada this year, most recently to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Reno in July. Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a Disabled American Veterans’ convention earlier in August.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has also made multiple stops in Nevada, and his running mate Paul Ryan paid a visit Tuesday.

Nevada is a key swing state in the upcoming November election.
