LAS VEGAS (AP) — Early voting began Saturday in the swing state of Nevada with rallies in both ends of the state.
Rallying supporters of President Barack Obama were Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia and actress Lynn Whitfield in Las Vegas, and women's rights activist Sandra Fluke in Reno and Carson City.
Comedian Paul Rodriguez joined supporters of Mitt Romney at a Las Vegas rally, while Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to speak on Romney's behalf Sunday night in Reno and Monday in Yerington, Fernley, Fallon and Carson City.
Another tight race features Republican U.S. Sen. Dean Heller and his Democratic challenger, Rep. Shelley Berkley.
Final Nevada voter registration numbers released Friday show that Democrats have a hefty advantage over Republicans.
Early voting ends Nov. 2. Election Day is Nov. 6.
