Photo Gallery | President Obama Visits North Las Vegas

President Barack Obama visited southern Nevada on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The president landed in Air Force One at Nellis Air Force Base Tuesday night after stopping in Reno earlier in the day. He helicoptered out to Henderson, where he spent the night at the Westin Lake Las Vegas.

President Obama then delivered a campaign speech, focusing largely on education, to a crowd estimated at more than 2,000 people in the gymnasium at Canyon Springs High School in North Las Vegas.

An 8 News Now/Las Vegas Review-Journal poll released Wednesday showed Obama leading presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney by two points, 47 to 45, with a margin of error of plus or minus three points. That makes the poll a statistical dead heat.
