Palin Visits Reno And Elko Tonight

By  | 

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin returns to the Biggest Little City on Monday night, with the presidential race tightening across the country.

Palin is scheduled to speak at the Livestock Events Center at around 7:30 pm. It will be the third time the Alaska governor has appeared in the Reno area.

Doors open at 5:30pm and the event is available to the public.

It's going to be a busy day for Governor Palin. Immediately after speaking in Reno, she heads east for a 10:30pm rally at Elko high school.

On Sunday, Palin campaigned in Ohio where she warned voters that an Obama victory would help create a one-party rule over the federal government.

"Let's not entrust all of the powers of your federal government to the one-party rule of Obama, Pelosi and Reid," said Palin. "See the rousing speeches of our opponent, they can fill a stadium, but they cannot keep our country safe."

The most recent Zogby International Poll shows Barack Obama leading John McCain by 4.2 percent in Nevada. Obama has a 5.7 percent edge nationwide.

With Governor Palin stumping in Northern Nevada on Monday, Senator McCain will make a stop down south in Henderson.
