LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- If you thought the pace of the presidential election was brisk, get a tight grip on the TV remote and grab the steering wheel of your car if you want to catch some of the action in person.
Today kicks off the two-week charge to election day when President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney engage in in their third and final debate in Florida. This one is supposed to focus on foreign policy. Tune in to News3 at 5:30 p.m.
Come Tuesday you can see the contenders in person when Romney and running mate Rep. Paul Ryan appear at a 12:15 p.m. campaign event at the Henderson Pavilion.
About 33 hours later, Obama is scheduled to appear at an event at Doolittle Park (MLK and West Lake Mead Boulevard). The doors open at 6 p.m. and the president will be in the first day of a two-day, six-state swing through the battleground states of Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, Florida, Virginia and Ohio -- along with a stop in his adopted hometown of Chicago to cast his early voting ballot on Thursday.
The action takes a day off on Thursday, but resumes Friday when first lady Michelle Obama makes a stop in Las Vegas. Details have not been released.
Free tickets for the events are available this week -- until they are exhausted -- at respective Republican and Democratic offices in the valley.
