Romney/Ryan talk jobs, bi-partisanship in Findlay

Posted: Updated:
FINDLAY, Ohio -

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were back in the Buckeye State on Sunday. The men at the top of the GOP ticket spoke at the University of Findlay's Koehler Fitness Complex.

They energized their base talking about education, job creation, bi-partisanship and Obamcare.

Ryan told the packed house that they need Ohio for an electoral victory and that Findlay may help decide the election.

He took a number of digs at President Obama saying he advanced an agenda that lacks vision, especially when it comes to job creation.

Romney laid out a five-step plan for creating millions of jobs by taking advantage of our oil, increasing trade, improving training in schools, balancing the budget and championing small businesses.

This is the first time Romney and Ryan have appeared together on the same stage in Northwest Ohio.

Romney promised the crowd, "Republicans and Democrats have to do this together.  I will go to Washington with Paul Ryan.  We'll meet regularly with Democrat leaders, with Republican leaders and find common ground where they're able to keep their principles and we're able to keep ours because it matters.  Look, the country is in a critical time and we need that kind of leadership."

Governor Romney was originally supposed to campaign in Virginia Beach on Sunday, but had to cancel due to Hurricane Sandy. Instead, he joined Paul Ryan at his Sunday Ohio rallies.
