President Barack Obama will arrive in Las Vegas Sunday for a three day visit.
The President will be speaking at Desert Pines high school on Sunday. Doors open at Desert Pines high school at 4 PM. The President is scheduled to arrive at 6:30 PM.
The campaign stop in Las Vegas is being touted as a grass roots type of rally.
Some may be surprised that President Obama has chosen to remain in Las Vegas, after the rally, to prepare for the first presidential debate since he has said some not so nice things about Las Vegas, at least two times in the past.
It is widely believed his disparaging comments helped plunge Nevada, particularly Las Vegas, further into a declining economy since he urged personal and business entities not to visit the tourism mecca.
Nevada continues to suffer through very difficult economic times, more so than the rest of the nation. Nevada still has the highest unemployment rate at over 12% and, even with the dreadful unemployment rate, extended benefits has ended plunging more people in the state into poverty.
He is staying through Wednesday morning to prepare for the first Presidential debate against Mitt Romney and will then be flying to Denver, Colorado.
The President is expected to be staying for three nights at the Westin Lake Las Vegas. It is said that nearly all of the rooms were booked with rooms going for over $150 each per night.
President Obama has visited Las Vegas numerous times this year.
The frequency of his visits demonstrates the importance of Nevada in the upcoming presidential election.
The president is actively courting the ever important Hispanic vote.
