The Nevada Senate race is one of a handful of key Senate contests next month that will determine control of the upper chamber.

The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election forecaster, rates the Nevada race as a “toss-up,” and a RealClearPolitics average of polls in the election shows the incumbent with a 1.7 percentage point lead.

Sisolak (D) will face Republican nominee Adam Laxalt in a bid to replace Gov. Brian Sandoval (R), who is not eligible for reelection because of term limits.

Next week’s event will be the latest in a string of recent appearances Obama has made to boost Democrats ahead of next month’s midterms. He returned to the campaign trail last month, delivering a stinging rebuke of Trump during remarks at the University of Illinois.

He has since appeared in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and released a list of endorsements for hundreds of Democratic candidates nationwide.
