Toward the tail-end of Mitt Romney’s address at a campaign stop in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the former Massachusetts governor was briefly knocked off message as he tried to drive home the important role that Nevada will could play in the Nov. 6 presidential election.

“The entire nation will be waiting to see what’s going to happen in Nevada,” he said, prompting a man in the crowd to bellow out “You can do it!” — borrowing a catch-phrase that former Saturday Night Live comedian Rob Schneider has cranked out while playing various characters on the big screen, most notably as the enthusiastic Cajun man in Adam Sandler’s “The Waterboy.”


“There, exactly,” Mr. Romney said in response, as the crowd hooted in laughter and cheered at the proclamation from the peanut gallery. “That’s a good strong voice.”
