FILE - In this Nov. 1, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks during a campaign event at Cheyenne Sports Complex in Las Vegas. In 2012, Obama vaulted to a re-election victory over Mitt Romney, who had staked his bid on the weakest U.S. economic rebound since the Great Depression and had pledged to slash taxes. Yet Obama won despite the highest unemployment rate of any president seeking re-election since World War II.  (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
