Obama Rails Against Republicans in Fiery Nevada Rally

Obama Rails Against Republicans in Fiery Nevada Rally

Sisolak, who's now the Commission Chairman of Clark County, the county that encompasses Las Vegas, faces Republican candidate Adam Laxalt, the state's attorney general. Democrats' chances of retaking Congress next year could suffer greatly if Hispanics fail to turn out to vote in similar numbers as seen in the 2016 elections.

Obama won the state during his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns.

"You guys go ahead and take a seat, I got a lot to say", he confessed just moments into his remarks.

Monday's rally at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas arena comes as Democrats are trying to build enthusiasm among young people and minority voters and avoid a repeat of the 2014 midterms when Democratic turnout faltered.

He told a captivated audience of 2,000 people in Las Vegas the consequences for not voting in this race "would be profoundly risky for our country". He also reminded the crowd that the 2011 killing of Osama bin Laden occurred under his watch and that the economic recovery that Trump often takes credit for started during his administration. "So when you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now".

Obama also touted the campaigns of Nevada gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak and U.S. House candidates Susie Lee and Steven Horsford.

Obama won Nevada during his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns and Democrat Hillary Clinton carried Nevada in 2016, but Republicans now hold all statewide offices and are hoping to sweep the state again this year.

Keelie Broom, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, said "Nevada saw some of its darkest days as a result of relentless government overreach advanced by the Obama administration".

Thirteen years ago, then-Senator Barack Obama called for reform to curb illegal immigration, using language that President Donald Trump might use today.

One of her supporters, Malerie Stanley, who arrived more than three hours before the rally to ensure she would get inside, said women's rights was the key issue for her in the midterms.

The former president said, "Let me say something as the man who passed the law that protects people with pre-existing conditions from being discriminated against: They have no way of protecting people with pre-existing conditions in anything they've proposed".

In subsequent appearances for Democrats in California, Ohio and Pennsylvania, he avoided a similar reproach and instead focused on urging people to vote.
