Obama leaves Nevada after rallying for Clinton, Dems

President Barack Obama is visiting Southern Nevada today to campaign for Hillary Clinton and Catherine Cortez Masto.

Obama campaigns for Clinton in Miami, Florida, October 20, 2016.

After Air Force One touched down around 3:30 p.m, Obama's motorcade headed down Tropicana Avenue, where crowds lined the street on both sides of Las Vegas Boulevard, snapping pictures and waving as the motorcade passed by.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Barack Obama is taking an unprecedented step into down-ballot races in the final two weeks before the 2016 election. Michelle Obama will make a joint campaign stop Tuesday with Clinton in Winston-Salem, N.C., to encourage early voters to head to the polls.

Obama's recent itinerary has focused on competitive White House states that also have close Senate races. It was an insult First Lady Michelle Obama called out directly during her first campaign speech of the season for Hillary Clinton in September. "They're not making the argument that they want to work with her to get things done".

"If you read some of these phony papers, these are phony, disgusting, dishonest papers, if you read them, it's like, 'What are we doing?"

The president's strategy was on full display Sunday in two separate events that opened a three-day swing on the West Coast. Harry Reid. Democrats need to retain that seat and pick up four more elsewhere to claim the Senate majority if Clinton wins.

Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor during a rally in OH on October 20, 2016.

There's never been a presidential family that has committed itself so totally and unequivocally in favor of their party's presidential contender and, in Donald Trump's case, against the rival party's candidate. But they're on tape. Obama said that for years, Republican politicians and far right media outlets have served up "all kinds of insane stuff" about him, Clinton and Sen. "Too late. You don't get credit for that". He recognizes that the GOP candidate's probable crash and burn provides Democrats with an unexpected opportunity for a clean sweep that was inconceivable before Trump appeared on the scene.

On Monday, Issa said he was disappointed but not surprised by Obama's comments, arguing that the president "continues to deny accountability for the serious scandals that happened under his watch where Americans died overseas and veterans have died here at home".

Polls indicate that the presidential and Senate races in Nevada are extremely tight.

The outgoing Democratic president is set to endorse 150 state legislative candidates - part of an effort to flip Republican-controlled state legislatures across the country ahead of the 2020 redistricting battle.

Election Day is November 8.

"She has exceeded our expectations in terms of how many events she has been able to do, willing to do", Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon said of the first lady. This year, just as he prepares to leave office, he seems to be approaching the task with newfound interest.

The former secretary of state campaigned alongside New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is running for the Senate, and Massachusetts Sen.
