Republican Vice Presidential nominee US Representative Paul Ryan was preaching to the choir today in Fort Collins.
Walker Mowers, a family run business in Northern Colorado set the stage for Paul Ryan's speech that focused mostly on jobs and more jobs.
"In case you haven't heard it lately, you built your business and we're proud of you for that," said Paul Ryan.
During the hour long rally, Ryan was critical of President Obama's leadership and what he claims to be a the lack of recovery of the American economy.
One Romney/Ryan supporter, Joe Cary, said that what stood out to him the most, was the promise of turn around for his small business.
"They borrowed, spent and wasted our tax dollars. They promised if the stimulus passed unemployment would never get above 8 percent. It's been above 8 percent for 43 months," said Paul Ryan.
An estimated 1,500 people attended the mid-day rally. The crowd swelled to such an extent that even the overflow area was….overflowing
Ryan pointed out that, unlike the last presidential election, President Obama now has a record to run against. The vice presidential nominee took a page from the Obama's 2008 campaign…a call for change.
"I mean if this president can't change Washington, I'd say it's about time we change presidents and elect Mitt Romney."
Ryan told the crowd President Obama's record is full of broken promises.
"We are choosing what kind of country we are going to have for a generation. It is that kind of election. It is that serious of an election."
Larimer County is one of five county's in Colorado that are a hot spots for both campaigns. And if today's rally is any indication, it's going to get even hotter by election day.
