The energy was at an all time high Monday night as Paul Ryan spoke at CMU.
Flags, banners and signs all waved in support of the republican candidate and his running mate.
Ryan focused on the topic of creating and expanding local trade jobs in the area.
"It is the men and women of America, that go to work everyday that start businesses and it's the workers of those businesses. It's the workers in the oil fields, it's the workers in the coal fields, it's the workers of small business's that do overtime that work hard so that they can succeed" said Paul Ryan.
Secretary of Mesa County Republican Party, Phyllis Hunsinger said, "He recognized that we're sitting here with lots of energy, the potential to improve our economy is vast."
Ryan had a full day in Colorado as he also made stops in Pueblo and Durango where he rallied more than a thousand people and drove home the message that small businesses have been hurt by president Obama's policies.
"I felt that it was very motivational, he made a lot of valid points about energy and jobs, economy and independence,” said Elisha, a senior at Fruita Monument High School.
The people who packed the seats agreed. The space got so full that seating actually had to be extended to fit everyone.
Secretary of Mesa County Republican Party, Phyllis Hunsinger said, "It was wonderful to see this gym just packed with standing room only with people, and to hear the plan that they have to turn this economy around, and it was just very rewarding, very heartening."
According to Ryan, this is the most important election in our lifetime, no matter what generation you're from.
Paul Ryan said, “We're going to take responsibility, we're going to lead."
