RENO, Nev. (AP) - President Barack Obama will hold a town hall
meeting in Reno on Thursday to discuss his budget-deficit reduction
The White House on Friday said Obama wants to speak directly to
Americans about his vision for reducing the debt based on the values of "shared responsibility and prosperity."
The time and venue for the event were not immediately released.
Obama will hold similar events Tuesday in Virginia and Wednesday in
Palo Alto, Calif.
It will be Obama's first trip to Reno since becoming president. He made several campaign stops in Reno before he was elected president.
Nevada has been a key battleground state in recent presidential elections with Democratic and Republican candidates making visits.
Both parties in the state boast early spots in the presidential nominating process.
