LOS ANGELES (AP) - President Barack Obama heads to economically
struggling Nevada on Friday. He's turning his attention to the
economy after a day spent raising millions of dollars for his
campaign and riding a media wave on his newly declared support for
Obama plans to promote housing policies to help homeowners avoid
foreclosure. Nevada ranks second in the nation in foreclosed homes
and has the highest unemployment in the country.
Obama won in Nevada in his 2008 presidential election. But the
economy presents new challenges as well as an opportunity for his
Republican rival, Mitt Romney.
