LAS VEGAS (AP) — President Barack Obama has left Las Vegas after a short visit co-hosting a Democratic party fundraiser and speaking at the National Clean Energy Summit.
Air Force One took off shortly after 10:15 a.m. Tuesday at McCarran International Airport and was headed back to the District of Columbia.
Obama had stayed overnight in Las Vegas after arriving about 4:25 p.m. Monday to announce initiatives aimed at making it easier to invest in green energy improvements at the summit.
The president then visited the home of Las Vegas Sun publisher Brian Greenspun for a Democratic party fundraiser.
Obama and U.S. Sen. Harry Reid co-hosted the dinner raising money for Democratic Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto. Reid is leaving the Senate after the 2016 election. Masto is running against Republican Rep. Joe Heck.
