CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Jobs and the economy are front and center in presidential politics in Nevada.
On Monday, Republicans and Democrats engaged small business
owners, who hailed or condemned the economic policies of President
Barack Obama and GOP hopeful Mitt Romney.
The dueling conference calls underscore just how close the race for the White House is and the role Nevada will play in the November election.
Two small business owners participated in a conference call with the Romney campaign in Nevada to explain how the new health care law and other Obama policies have increased costs and stifled job creation.
Democrats responded with a conference call of their own featuring two different business owners who said Obama's health reforms and small business tax cuts have helped them weather the recession.
