The wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is making her second campaign appearance in less than a week in Nevada, hoping to sway voters in a key battleground state six weeks before the election.
Ann Romney's scheduled Monday afternoon appearance at a convention center in downtown Henderson will put her just seven miles from the Lake Las Vegas resort where President Barack Obama is practicing for his Wednesday debate with Mitt Romney in Denver.
Ann Romney told an audience of more than 500 in Reno on Thursday that Nevada is critical to GOP success Nov. 6.
