Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is scheduled to campaign at Las Vegas’ Bonanza High School this afternoon.
The rally, aimed at getting Obama supporters out to the polls during the early voting period, is free and open to the public. Doors open at noon at the stadium of the high school, located at 6665 Del Rey Ave., near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Torrey Pines Drive.
Obama is scheduled to speak at 3 p.m. Tickets are not required, but the campaign encourages online RSVPs at nv.barackobama.com/LasVegasVote.
Before he heads to Las Vegas, Obama is scheduled to campaign in Reno at the UNR baseball field. Doors open to that event at 7:30 a.m.
The visit will be Obama’s 19th trip to Nevada over the course of the campaign and his sixth since the caucuses in January. His opponent, Republican John McCain, has not been to the state since early August.
Also headed to Southern Nevada in the coming days is Obama’s wife Michelle, the campaign announced Friday. She is scheduled to campaign in the Las Vegas area on Monday. Further details of her visit were not disclosed.
