RENO, Nev. (AP) — Ann Romney is making another trip to Reno to try to whip up support for her husband's presidential campaign.

The wife of the former Republican governor of Massachusetts is hosting a noon rally Thursday at the Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater inside Bartley Ranch Regional Park on the city's south side.

Washoe County has become a bit of a battleground within the battleground of Nevada because it traditionally sides with Republicans but has seen Democratic registration on the rise in recent years.

Last election, President Obama became the first Democrat to carry Washoe County since Lyndon Johnson in 1964.

Ann Romney made campaign swing through northern Nevada about a year ago when she visited GOP headquarters in Minden and Reno with Dema Guinn, the widow of former Nevada Gov. Kenny Guinn.
