At Monday's rally, a variety of voters came out to show their support. Some supporters will be casting their first vote in this year's election, others compared Ryan's visit to that of Reagan's.
18 year-old Briana Herr will vote for the first time this year, helping to choose the next president of the United States of America. For Briana, taking her experience back home with her is the most important aspect of Monday. "So many of my classmates have no idea what's going on, they have no clue of their stances on the issues, so if I can bring this back to them, that means everything," she said.
Chris Mortimer attended his first rally on Monday, and enjoyed seeing all of key Republican players in person. "My favorite part was getting to see all the people that were in there with their political party. It was nice getting to meet with some people and figure out what are really like, instead of seeing them on TV," Chris said.
Angela Laudermilk had the day off work and took the time to hear what Paul Ryan had to say. "I thought this would be a great opportunity to drive to Lima and come and meet him (Ryan), and get to see what he had to say," said Angela.
Claudette and Don Hager made the drive from Ft. Shawnee on Monday to see Paul Ryan speak. Monday's visit to hear Ryan was not the couples first political speech, as they recall hearing Reagan speak years ago. "It's very important to me; I like to participate in the campaigns, and I'm very interested in what's going on in our country right now," Claudette said.
Romney and Ryan are now continuing their three day bus tour through the buckeye state, making their next stop in Columbus.
