President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney have each made stops in the Silver State, with the November election quickly approaching.
On Tuesday, the president will give a public speech at Truckee Meadows Community College.
Hundreds of voters stood in line to get their hands on what they say is the hottest ticket in town Sunday morning. The line wrapped around the Washoe County Democratic Party Headquarters.
These folks were all here for a chance to see President Obama speak Tuesday night.
"I was here by myself at 5 a.m.," says Rex Ricks. "It's just grown like wildfire, but I'm glad I got here when I did."
Not everyone showed up to see the sunrise, but there were plenty of devoted President Obama supporters in attendance.
"My main reason is, I wanted to come out here because I wanted to show President Obama that I support him," says Jerome Segar.
At 11 a.m. the doors opened up and voters piled in. They say seeing the president is a once in a lifetime experience, something they just couldn't pass up. Democratic Party representatives love to see this much excitement.
"We're here to support President Obama," says Pam DuPre with the Democratic Party of Washoe County. "We're here to support his message of building the economy from the middle class out."
Democrats may be busy in the days leading up to Tuesday, but so are Republicans. Romney's campaign bus made a stop in Reno on Saturday. Republican Party representatives say they aren't sure what the president even has to talk about.
"I don't know what he keeps coming back here for," says Dave Buell, Washoe County Republican Chairman. "We have 12 percent unemployment, foreclosure's the highest rate in the nation, bankruptcies."
Buell acknowledges how important Washoe County will be in November. That's why Republicans will be knocking on doors and making phone calls leading up to the election.
"We expect to see a lot of Romney and (Paul) Ryan up here in the days to come, because Nevada is a crucial state," says Buell.
Tuesday night should be exciting for both sides of the presidential ticket.
"I figure it will be like a rock concert, the place will just be full of energy," says Ricks.
