Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- President Obama spoke in front of a crowd of about 8,000 people at the Cashman Center in Las Vegas on Wednesday evening.
The President landed in Air Force One just before 4 p.m. He was whisked to the Cashman Center in a limousine and took the stage just after 6 p.m.
Obama began his talk recognizing the death of four U.S. diplomats in Libya. He then transitioned into the topic of education.
"No family should have to set aside a college acceptance letter because they don't have enough money," the President said.
Thousands of supporters cheered as President Obama also reiterated his stance on immigration, taxes and the economy.
The crowd launched into a chant of "Four more years" as the President said he plans to keep going forward if re-elected.
