Gibbons turned down an offer to shake hands with the president today, saying he wanted more than a “momentary” greeting given the president’s February remarks. Locals with signs saying “Vegas Means Business” may greet the president as he arrives in town.

“Apparently our money is good enough for the president, but our tourism, jobs and economic future are not,” said Gov. Gibbons.
