RENO (AP) -- President Barack Obama has won battleground Nevada and its six electoral votes, adding to a victory that will send him to the White House for four more years.

Both Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney campaigned heavily in the swing state that went for the president by a surprising 12 percent points in 2008.

Obama made 10 trips to the state this year, and Republicans were no less visible. Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was in Reno as late as Monday morning.

Obama had a harder time shaking Romney in a state battered by high unemployment and foreclosures. Still, the president benefited by a large advantage in registered voters as Democrats outnumbered Republicans by about 90,000 statewide.
