President Barack Obama may be the main event in Las Vegas on Thursday, but after he’s done speaking, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will take the stage nearby to drum up support among voters on the other side of the political fence.

The Mitt Romney campaign said Ryan will visit the Las Vegas Victory Headquarters near Tropicana Avenue and Grand Canyon Drive to thank campaign volunteers. The event is at 6:30 p.m., which is after Obama’s event that is scheduled for about 2 p.m. at the Cheyenne Sports Complex in North Las Vegas.

The doors will open for Ryan’s event at 9640 Tropicana Ave., suite 106, at 4 p.m.

Ryan will also be in Reno Thursday afternoon, speaking at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center at 3:30 p.m.

  1. So what are you going to say Mr. Paul Ryan? Gonna tell us the entire gaming industry will move all operation to China?

    Mr. Ryan, your candidate Mitt Romney lied to the people living in Ohio by saying Jeep would move US car production from Ohio to China. Mitt Romney said this, he didn't take it back, he doubled down in a TV commercial.

    Two top car manufactures released restrained statements telling the American people that Mitt Romney lied. This man is a severely flawed dishonest presidential candidate, not worthy of the office president.

    President Obama wins re-election by 6 to 8 points.

  2. The collossal nerve of Romney/Ryan; the convenient photo ops to exploit the needy and the poor, the massive 'donations' to this sham of a campaign by Sheldon Adelson, the dirty, DIRTY tricks being pulled, and it stuns me that folks are not doing ANY research on Romney! Boss Tweed relied on the ignorance of the American people to run HIS politicial machine in the 1800's. Romney is relying on the same in the 21st Century.

    He is a racketeer who does not deserve to be elected. Wonder why MA is a blue state these days? They had a nickname for Romney: "FEE-FEE". Look up
