VP Candidate Ryan Rallies Ohioans In Marietta

By  | 

Three more days, that's what people in Marietta were shouting Saturday as they showed their support for Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan.

"Ohio are you going to help us win this thing?," Paul Ryan asks supporters.

It's no joke to people in the buckeye state how important this election is.

College student, Ryan Cahall says, "we're scared about the future and when we graduate and I think Mitt Romney is going to be the one to help us out."

That support is shared by all who rallied at the Romney/Ryan victory event at Marietta College.

"We're here to see hopefully the next vice president," says young supporter, Grant.

Supporter Bill Mason adds, "I wanted to see the future vice president of the United States, that's why. It's pride in Marietta. We wanted to make sure we had a good turnout to show our support to them."

The clock is ticking, and Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan wants Ohioans to know he's focused on jobs, spending, and natural resources both in the valley and across the nation.

"We can fix this mess tomorrow. On day one we're gonna approve the Keystone Pipeline. We're going to get at these coal regulations. We're going to make sure we can get these energy jobs back in our country," Ryan says.

The Romney/Ryan campaign is fighting for Ohio and fighting for coal. Which is something people in the buckeye swing state take very seriously.

"I believe in this part of the state with natural resources, it can make a large contribution to job creation. Coal and oil and gas. I look forward to working in a bipartisan way, bringing democrats and republicans together to protect our jobs in the oil, gas, and coal areas," says Candidate for U.S. Senate, Josh Mandel. He supports Ryan, and Ryan supports Mandel's current efforts as the current Treasurer of Ohio.

"Right here in the heart of coal country, we've got so much energy. In this state, in this country, let's use that energy in this state and this country and put people back to work," Ryan adds.

Work that many right here in Marietta are struggling to find.

"I'm one of those people that had a stimulus job under Obama and I voted for Obama. I now have no job," says Brenda Adams, who also says she is voting for Romney/Ryan this year.

"You need to get people the skills they need so they can get their feet back on firm footing, so they can get their lives back on track, so they can get a good job for the 21st century," Ryan says.

A message this campaign is sure to stress for three more days.
