President Obama will be making another stop in the Biggest Little City next week.
This visit comes just one month after his previous stop in Reno to speak at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention on July 23. Mitt Romney was most recently in Reno for a private fundraiser on July 27th.
For this visit, the president will be staying longer than the previous few stops. His campaign tells Channel 2 that he will be spending two days in the Silver State, starting in Reno on Tuesday and then heading down south to Las Vegas on Wednesday.
"I think it's great," Reno resident Jeane Verdeyen said, "because I think the more he's here, and the more we hear him, the more we'll understand what his plan is."
"I think that's nice for Reno," Reno resident Wayne Davis said. "It puts us on the map, but personally I am not a big Obama fan."
"I support Obama," Reno resident Morey Khabaz said. "I like that. It's a good idea."
"I think I would rather have him taking care of business in Washington than off campaigning all day," Reno resident Tim Heydon said.
But will all this focus on Nevada voters have an effect on who they choose come November, or have they already made up their minds?
"I think there are some diehards on both sides," Heydon said. "I think the die is cast for them, but it's those independents I think that are still up for grabs."
"I think that in my small circle, we're pretty well decided," Davis said.
"I think there are a lot of undecideds," Verdeyen said. "I think because we're not sure exactly what the plan is on both sides."
Channel 2 will be covering the president's visit from the moment Air Force One touches down on the air and online on Tuesday.
