The president is expected to address a campaign rally around 2 p.m. today at Cheyenne Sports Complex, 3500 East Cheyenne Ave. in North Las Vegas. Doors are scheduled to open at 11:30 a.m.
Actress Eva Longoria and percussionist Sheila E. will join Obama at the rally.
Obama spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said that while the president remains focused on the storm recovery, "there is a reality of a political election happening in five days and he will return to the trail to make the case to the American people on why they should send him back for four more years."
And what a strange reality it is. But alas, we only have 6 days left until the final polls close. And here in Nevada, we only have 2 more days until early voting ends. So this may really be President Obama's last chance to fire up the base and persuade a few more undecided voters.
Oh, and I'll be there today. Yes, a friend & I will go to North Las Vegas to see Mr. President. And I'll update the blog later with reports from the Cheyenne Sports Complex. I'm sure it will be plenty of fun. ;-)
