- Mostly cloudy
CINCINNATI - Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan told a Tri-State audience that he and Mitt Romney will tackle the debt crisis, improve unemployment and cut spending if they're elected.
Ryan spoke mostly in generalities about how he and Romney would solve those problems and criticized President Barack Obama for not fixing them during four years in office.
Ryan's comments came during a town hall Tuesday at Byer Steel, a Carthage steel factory.
Ryan next will meet Romney at what their campaign says is an afternoon victory rally at the Dayton International Airport.
Obama also will be in Ohio this week as he visits the college towns of Bowling Green and Kent on Wednesday.
Both candidates have new ads aimed at winning working-class voters who could help swing the election.
