(Las Vegas, NV) President Obama’s latest campaign visit to Las Vegas took on a somber note, as he honored the four Americans who died in an attack on the US consulate in Libya.

Speaking to an estimated eight-thousand supporters at Cashman Center last night, the president thanked the victims and their families for their service, and vowed to brink the killers to justice.

He then began a defense of his economic policies, and accused Republican opponent Mitt Romney of offering “old sales pitches.” Soon after his 30-minute speech, Obama left Vegas for Colorado.
