Carson City, Nev. (AP) -- Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama is upbeat about his prospects in Nevada.
Obama, who met with lawmakers and voters in the state capital, says that while other candidates such as Hillary Rodham Clinton have more early endorsements in Nevada, he will catch up with grass-roots support. He says he'll enjoy the same success in attracting the state's rural voters as he did back home in Illinois.
Coinciding with her trip to Nevada, Clinton unveiled a list of supporters there, including former Governor Bob Miller and black community leaders.
But Obama says he isn't concerned. As he puts it "we're still getting known in Nevada. This is my third visit." Obama says it's not surprising that Senator Clinton is able to get some of the traditional endorsements.
