Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan held rally for supporters in Montrose
A local rally was held for the Republican vice presidential hopeful.
Paul Ryan was back on the Western Slope today energizing Republicans in Montrose. Ryan encouraged them to talk to everyone they know and to help get them to the polls for what he says is a crucial election in our country's history.
"This is the most important election in our lifetime no matter what generation we come from” said Ryan.
Ryan’s visit was his second in less than two weeks. As the crowd in Montrose chanted “four more days” Ryan told the crowd that this was more than just an election.
"We all love this country and we have a really big choice to make. We’re not just picking a president for four years. We are picking the kind of country we're going to be for at least a generation” said Ryan.
Ryan also hit on the point of tapping into energy sources here in Colorado.
"We’ve got so much energy here in this country. We’ve got so much energy in this state. Let’s use that energy and put people back to work" explained Ryan.
Another issue Ryan talked about was the economy and he hitting a note and connected with many of his supporters.
"The economy has just been a disaster for so many people. i've been struggling. i know a lot of people have been struggling" said Kathy Murdoch, resident of Montrose.
Ryan told voters that with their help, they wouldn't have to go four more years with the current administration.
"We can't afford to wait four more years for real change to get us on the right track. We only need to wait four more days" Ryan said to supporters.
Ryan reminded supporters to pray for those in the northeast and to donate towards relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. He’ll be back in Colorado on Monday for another rally on the eve of election day.
