Obama says Nevadans have drawn a winning hand with Democrats

Getting into the Las Vegas spirit, President Barack Obama told Nevadans late Sunday they have a winning hand in Democrats Hillary Clinton and Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto.

Obama was campaigning to boost Clinton's prospects and help Democrats to retake Senate control, scheduling a stop Sunday in tightly contested Nevada before headlining party fundraisers in California.

"You've got black jack," Obama told a crowd of 3,000 boisterous supporters packed into a local high school, while another 2,100 were in an exterior courtyard.

Obama was unsparing in his criticism of Trump, describing the billionaire businessman as unfit to serve as president. Obama said that for years, Republican politicians and far right media outlets have trumped up "all kinds of crazy stuff" about him, Clinton and Reid.

Bill Clinton makes surprise stop in North Las Vegas

Bill Clinton made a surprise visit to a Democratic campaign office in North Las Vegas to rally volunteers the morning after the final presidential debate at UNLV.

Clinton told a crowd of about 60 people on Thursday that it was "weird" that Donald Trump said he might not accept the outcome of the election, and later said he would if he won. He said it would be great if people could win all the time, but they don't, and what's important is living in a free and open country where there's equal opportunity.

He urged volunteers to make the case for his wife and not "respond in kind" when they meet hostility.

Clinton was introduced by Nevada Democratic House candidate Ruben Kihuen... Read More

Drivers Beware: 'Carnado' coming to Spaghetti Bowl

Getting around the Spaghetti Bowl is going to get a bit complicated in the coming months. On Thursday, NDOT announced major ramp closures that will start next week.

It's all part of Project Neon, a road construction project to widen I-15.

Direct access from I-15 to US 95 in both directions will be limited starting later next week. The closures are expected to cause traffic to spill onto surface streets.

Project Neon is forcing lengthy closures around the Spaghetti Bowl. The Nevada Department of Transportation is calling it "Carnado."

Find alternate routes

Starting Wednesday, through February of next year, the I-15 ramps to US 95 will be closed in both directions.

"It's very busy, like everybody commutes. For me, it's from North Vegas on down to here cause it's the way you can get on the freeway closest to me," said driver Lavonta Goffner.

And that's not all... Read More
