Obama, Ryan landing in Las Vegas Thursday

Posted: Updated:

As Hurricane Sandy's wrath calms down, both the Obama and Romney campaigns are preparing for another storm as Election Day is now less than one week away.

Local Southern Nevada volunteers are in the home stretch.

"They are very excited about getting out and voting for the president, who wants to move this country forward," said Zac Petkanas, spokesperson for the Nevada Democratic Party.

"We've had very strong turn out on our side, especially right here in Las Vegas," said Mason Harrison, spokesperson for the Romney Campaign in Nevada.

Keeping the energy up and getting those who have not early voted to the polls, the faces of the campaigns are coming to Southern Nevada.

First President Barack Obama will be addressing a crowd at the Cheyenne Sports Complex, near the CSN campus in North Las Vegas.

"What it does is it excites the troops, volunteers are out there knocking on doors... it pumps people up gets people excited and to continue to do what they're doing," Petkanas said.

After the president leaves, Republican Vice President Nominee Congressman Paul Ryan will be rallying support for his running mate at the Romney campaign offices near Fort Apache and Tropicana.

"Folks are just really really excited about it. He's going to be here campaigning with volunteers helping them put together precinct packets, helping them make phone calls," Harrison said.

With polls in Nevada still very close, local staffs from both campaigns are trying to make Nevadans' choice clear.

"The clear choice in this election between (President Obama's) vision of moving this economy forward… comparing that to someone like Mitt Romney who has spent his career shipping jobs overseas," Petkanas told FOX5.

"Nevadans have a clear choice, more of the same or four years of a real recovery," Harrison told FOX5.
