Obama in Reno July 23, Romney July 24 with VFW

Posted: Updated:

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- President Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney will be in Reno on consecutive days later this month to address the 113th national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S.

Romney is scheduled to speak at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center on July 24.

VFW Commander Richard DeNoyer confirmed on Tuesday that Obama would address the group July 23. Neither speech is open to the public.

It will be Romney's first visit to Reno since he won Nevada's GOP caucus in February. Obama was in Reno in May to promote new opportunities to refinance mortgages.

Nevada is considered one of the key battleground states in the November election. Obama won last time around and became the first Democrat to carry Republican-leaning Washoe County since Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
