POWELL, Ohio - Just days before the republican convention in Tampa, former governor Mitt Romney and congressman Paul Ryan stopped in Powell, Ohio Saturday morning, located just outside of Columbus.
Since January, Romney has made over a dozen trips to the buckeye state. Most polls show him running neck and neck with president Obama as the two duke it out for those crucial 18 electoral votes.
The two came on stage to the song 'Footloose' and thunderous applause from the crowd. Romney asked a several questions to the audience, to which they yelled back a resounding,"NO." Questions like,"Do you want four more years of Barak Obama?"
Romney delivered the usual red meat to the crowd, which they ate up. "I like the fact that they are going to shine a bright light on Medicare," said Dianna Ross, of no relation to the famous singer, and a Romney supporter.
There was an estimated 5,000 people in attendance who were up and out to support their candidate. "I got up at 4:30 in the morning to be here," said Carol Brown a Romney supporter.
NewsChannel 5 was granted an interview with the two candidates that you will be able to see exclusively on NewsChannel 5 and Newsnet5.com Sunday evening.
