VP Hopeful Hits Campaign Trail While Romney Prepares for Debate
On the tails of the GOP convention last week, Mitt Romney's running mate is back on the campaign trail focused on one question for voters "are you better off than you were four years ago?"
It's a question President Ronald Reagan made famous when he beat incumbent President Jimmy Carter in 1980 and it's one Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan is emphasizing now.
During a stop in Ohio Tuesday, Ryan went after Vice President Joe Biden for telling Detroit auto workers the country is better off than it was four years ago. And on CBS This Morning, Ryan criticized the President for failing to make good on a campaign promise to save the General Motors plant there.
"The President said he'd led an effort to re-tool the GM plant, get people back to work, that didn't happen," Ryan said.
Right now Mitt Romney is off the campaign trail preparing for next month's presidential debate. His campaign raised $100 million last month, extending a huge fundraising lead over President Obama.
