LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — President Donald Trump campaigned in the Silver State Sunday, making it clear that Nevada is a big priority for him in this election.
The president held a rally in Carson City Sunday evening, saying he’s the clear choice for voters, but the Biden campaign says Nevadans should not buy into that message.
“Sixteen days from now, we are going to win the state of Nevada,” President Trump said. “We’re going to win four more years in the White House.”
Thousands of supporters cheered for the president at his “Make America Great Again” rally at Carson City Airport. Trump touted his accomplishments, focusing as he usually does, on the economy.
“We’ll fully resume the Nevada tourism and hospitality industry, which is fantastic, will come roaring back, and it will,” President Trump said. “When you vote for me, prosperity will surge.”
Earlier Sunday morning, the president attended a service at the International Church of Las Vegas.
His visit to Nevada comes as early voting across the state gets underway.
State Senator and Biden Campaign Senior Adviser Yvanna Cancela told 8 News Now voters have the chance to change the direction of this country.
Democrats are continuing to criticize the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic fallout.
The Democratic National Committee even put these billboards across the state, including one not too far from Trump Tower, calling the administration a failure.
“Joe Biden not only has a plan, he has the experience to make sure that we address both facets of the pandemic,” State Senator Cancela said. “What Trump has done is a disservice to families across the country and especially here in Nevada.”
Still, President Trump hopes he can count on Nevada in November.
“We will make America great again, get out and vote, thank you,” President Trump concluded.
During his rally, President Trump mentioned that he is, “leading in Nevada,” but according to the latest CBS News Battleground Poll, Trump is six points behind Biden.
