Election '08: Battleground Report -- Obama Blitzes Nevada

BY MARC COOPER

With thousands of Californians pouring over the border to assist in a last-minute door-to-door ground blitz, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama revved up a crowd of 15,000 local supporters Saturday morning saying that "there's only 3 days left before we change America."

Long lines of rally goers formed before 7:00 a.m. at a high school football field in the blue-collar suburb of Henderson and then patiently waited more than two hours for Obama to arrive.

"Don't think for one moment that this election is already over," Obama warned the cheering crowd, saying that they should take nothing for granted. A spate of polls show Obama leading McCain by 5-7 points in the Silver State. Nevada has not recently voted for a Democratic president but has consistently been trending blue.
