Election 2012: Ryan Makes Final Pitch

Republican vice presidential nominee campaigns in Nevada

By Cheyenne Ruiz | November 5 , 2012

RENO, Nevada — On Monday, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan attended a Romney Victory Rally in Reno, Nevada. The theme of the rally was clear — one more day to make a difference, and one more day to give the country a new President.

Ryan was accompanied by Governor Brian Sandoval, Dean Heller, and Romney's youngest son, Craig.

"This is our moment, this is our time," stated Sandoval.

After Sandoval, Ryan took to the podium. Ryan began by stating how crucial Nevada is to this election. Ryan said that Nevada would be one of the states that will "figure this out."

"You've got to talk to your friends, you've got to talk to your neighbors and, even in this election, you have to talk to those distant relatives you haven't talked to in a long time," he stated.

Ryan continued to talk about "getting this nation back on the right track," and about how Obama stated that "he'd fix all these problems" and he instead made those problems larger.

"What we see now is an administration and a presidency littered with broken promises," stated Ryan. "He didn't bring people together. He divided people. He's trying to win by default and we are simply not going to let him get away with it are we? We don't have to settle for this."

"This may be the best Obama can offer, but it's not the best America can," Ryan continued. "We need to get off the path of poverty and on the path of prosperity."

When he finished his speech, Ryan exited the stage as the crowd chanted "One more day!"

Even Ryan's 10-year-old daughter Lyza got into the spirit and shouted "One more day!" into the microphone after her dad was done speaking. Her brother held up two fingers in the shape of a V for victory.

Many people that attended were there to show support and to see "the future Vice President."

"The economy is a major issue," stated Nancy and Jack Rose.

"We need to get the economy moving, get spending down, and we have too much government for our budget," agreed Vi and Alan Power.

"We want a good future for you kids," stated Mary and John Moff.
