Obama campaigns in Las Vegas
Three days before the 2008 US election, Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama was campaigning in Las Vegas.
He also plans to campaign in Colorado and Missouri.

About 15,000 people attended a rally in Henderson, Nev., packing into the Coronado High School football field, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Obama, who has visited the state 20 times during the campaign, reminded his supporters the election is three days away.
"After decades of broken politics in Washington, after eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, after 21 months of a campaign that has taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of Nevada, we are three days away from change in the United States of America," he said.
If Obama carries every state Sen. John Kerry took in 2004, he needs only one large state, an Ohio or Florida, or two or three smaller ones, to win. Pennsylvania is the only state Kerry won that Republican nominee John McCain is seriously contesting at this point, putting most of his energy into trying to hang on to states that went for Bush, the Review-Journal said.
