YOUNGSTOWN (AP) - Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan spent the morning here trying to rally blue-collar votes for the Romney ticket.
The Wisconsin congressman told a crowd of 1,400 people at Youngstown State University that a strong manufacturing industry is key to a strong economy. He also says President Barack Obama hasn't done enough to strengthen the U.S. economy.
The Republicans also are trying to energize Ohio's young voters this weekend. Ryan is planning to attend tailgate parties at Bowling Green State University later in the day, and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has an afternoon rally at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth.
Republican vice presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., campaigns at Youngstown State University this morning.
The Democrats counter that the GOP is pushing the same policies that led to the economic crisis in the first place.
One Democrat in particular, U.S. Rep Tim Ryan, took the opportunity to counter the vice presidential hopeful by holding a news conference prior to the other Ryan's event.
