Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- President Obama rallied voters in Las Vegas Wednesday night with help from pop star Katy Perry.
The President landed at McCarran International Airport a few minutes behind schedule, with Air Force One touching down at about 9 p.m.
As President Obama made his way to Doolittle Park in Las Vegas, Katy Perry warmed up the crowd performing some of her biggest hits.
Katy Perry wore an election ballot dress and was cheered on by a crowd of thousands.
President Obama took the stage at about 9:50 p.m. to a raucous applause.
During his speech, the President urged voters to head to the polls early and support his campaign for four more years in office.
President Obama touched on the economy and his plan for increasing taxes for the wealthy during his speech as well.
The President also referenced "Romnesia" several times, a jab at his opponent Mitt Romney.
Romney and running mate Paul Ryan were in the Las Vegas area Tuesday, rallying about 6,000 supporters at the Henderson Pavilion.
First Lady Michelle Obama is set to speak to supporters in Las Vegas on Friday.
