It was a similar story on Monday as the president took a break to visit volunteers at a local campaign office and grab a bite to eat.
Obama for America campaign volunteer David Chess decided at the last minute not to come in to volunteer on Monday. It turned out to be the day Obama walked in.
"It's called missing the boat," Chess said. "I missed the boat."
"I saw everybody hugging him," said Esther Sass, who volunteers for Obama's campaign. "I thought that could have been me."
Sass was stuck in the parking lot. The Secret Service wouldn't let her in.
"I had a very strong feeling that I was going to meet him," Sass said. "I actually made a list of talking points. I thought he could use my 2 cents for the debate."
Obama signed a poster at the office. Volunteers said his visit re-invigorated the campaign.
"I thought it was just incredible," Chess said. "I'm sure that he energized all of the offices throughout the valley."
"We had no idea," said Liliana Orneles, manager of Settebello Pizzeria. "We just thought it was a regular order."
Settebello Pizza is buzzing over the fact that the president ordered six pizzas. While he had someone pick the order up for him, the exposure has doubled pizza orders.
"Everyone has been asking about it when they come in," Orneles said. "Everyone was calling to place orders and asking about our pizzas. This morning our phone was pretty busy."
The same thing happened a few months ago when the president ordered from another local pizza shop.
"It's a huge boost," Orneles said.
The pizza restaurant is hoping to capitalize on the president's visit with a presidential pizza special. They also have ideas for a new marketing slogan, such as, "If it's good enough for the president, it's good enough for you."
Obama is scheduled to leave McCarran International Airport Wednesday before noon. He'll fly to Denver for his first debate with Romney.
The debate will air live on FOX5 starting at 6 p.m.
