Obama to Campaign for Group of Vulnerable officials

Former President Barack Obama plans to visit southern Nevada on November 1 to rally for vulnerable Democratic incumbents in the state, who are seeking to stem a possible red wave.

The early voting will be a major focus of the visit that Nevada Democrats hope will lead to Governor Steve Sisolak, U.S.

Wednesday's announcement came the same day Sisolak's campaign released a video showing the former president endorsing the governor.

Former President Donald Trump has made two stops in Nevada to campaign for Democratic Senate nominee Adam Laxault and GOP gubernatorial nominee Joe Lombardo.

The final phase of the midterm cycle marked the beginning of the campaigning for Obama, who remained mostly away from the political spotlight for nearly six years after his presidency.

Democrats are hoping to gain steam back in a race marked by high inflation, abortion rights, a low approval rating of President Joe Biden and appeals from the state's working class and Latino voters, whose turnout may decide the race.

Some Democrats across the country are outraged over whether they want to campaign with Biden as Republican challengers attempt to link their opponents to the president

During a governor's debate this month, Sisolak called Biden a "very good" president and said he has inherited problems from Trump for which he is today blamed.

He said he hadn't asked Biden to campaign with him, but said the president "welcomes you to come to the state of Nevada."
