Obama has visited Nevada 16 times as president and eight times this year, according to his campaign, which has 27 offices in the state.
Democrats lead Republicans in voter registration, 590,918 to 484,015, with 241,876 registered as nonpartisan, according to August statistics released by the Nevada Secretary of State’s office.
A top adviser to Obama said yesterday that Obama’s lead in the polls will shrink after the debate because Romney will get a boost from being on the same stage as the president.
"This race is going to tighten," David Plouffe said on NBC’s "Meet the Press." On ABC’s "This Week," Plouffe said, "We believed all along that Governor Romney probably has more benefit out of this debate potentially than we do."
