Trying to build a strong case for her husband's presidential bid, Ann Romney addressed a crowd of around 1,000 supporters on Monday at the Henderson Convention Center.
Right away, she acknowledged the importance of Nevada's votes.
"You guys are going to make all the difference in the world in November and we're excited about that," Romney said.
During a sit-down interview before her speech, Romney told FOX5 she believes the race in the Silver State could come down to the wire.
"We remember how close Iowa was and it was down to like 20 votes in Iowa, so every person needs to know their vote matters and their vote counts. I truly believe that my husband is the one who has the capability, the experience, the know-how to get this economy jump-started again," Romney said.
The wife of the presidential candidate admitted to reporters in Reno on Saturday that she does have a small concern for her husband's mental well being should he end up in office.
She told FOX5 that won't affect his abilities.
"He's perfectly capable of doing it, but we always worry about the pressure of the job. And if anyone wants to think it's not a pressure job, look at how everyone turns grey," Romney said.
Many who came and listened to Romney's speech Monday agreed that her husband is capable and competent enough for the top office.
"I really believe that he is the man sent to us to help us get America back," said Paula Wolfe, a supporter from Boulder City.
"It's very clear from what he has done, what he will do," said another Boulder City resident, Jon Barth.
