LAS VEGAS  — President Barack Obama has a Sin City problem that won't go away.

Nevada state officials and residents alike are still fuming nearly two years after Obama discouraged corporations that received bailout money from holding lavish meetings in Las Vegas. Then last year, Obama said Americans saving for college shouldn't blow the cash in Sin City.

State officials and residents in this economically ravaged state perceived the comments as a rant against the tourism industry.

The friction has resurfaced as Obama counts on Nevada's support for re-election next year. He's to visit a Las Vegas neighborhood Monday as part of a nationwide tour to sell his jobs plan.

Former Nevada Gov. Bob List says Republicans plan to remind voters at every opportunity that Obama slammed the industry that employs most Nevadans.
