First Lady Urges Nevadans to Get Out the Vote

Posted: Updated:

First Lady Michelle Obama says it will take a lot of hard work by supporters to make sure President Barack Obama carries Nevada on Election Day.

The first lady was in Las Vegas on Friday. She urged a cheering crowd to make phone calls and knock on doors to ensure a big voter turnout for a presidential race tight enough to go either way.

She told the crowd in a school gym to "work like you've never worked before."

She flashed a thumb's up when the crowd chanted "four more years."

The Democratic president and Republican challenger Mitt Romney were also in the Silver State this week pleading with voters to go to the polls. 

The First Lady's plane was delayed as she was trying to fly out of Las Vegas because of mechanical problems.

A McCarran International Airport spokesman says her aircraft was held up for three hours but departed about 9 p.m. PDT.

Officials don't know the nature of the mechanical issues that delayed her flight home. (AP)
