HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan rallied for change in the White House before a Las Vegas-area crowd that campaign organizers put at more than 6,000.

Fresh from his Monday debate with President Barack Obama, Romney sounded familiar themes Tuesday and asked if voters can afford four more years of Democratic policies.

The appearance drew an overflow crowd to the Henderson Pavilion amphitheater.

Ryan says the debates showed Romney has the demeanor, temperament and skills to be a leader.

The crowd booed when Romney mentioned the Obama health care reform law, and cheered when Romney said he wants to keep the American military the strongest in the world.

Romney and Ryan are due later Tuesday in the Denver area before Romney returns to Reno on Wednesday.
