WASHINGTON — Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is set to deliver a speech in Ohio outlining how Mitt Romney would help middle-class families.
Aides say Ryan will tell voters Wednesday that the country cannot afford four more years of President Barack Obama. They say the Wisconsin congressman specifically plans to reach out to low-income people and tell them that Romney would be better for them than the president.
Ryan also will tell voters that Romney will keep social safety nets in place for those who need them, and offer parents more choices to educate their children.
The speech is set for Wednesday afternoon at Cleveland State University in politically important Ohio.
Both campaigns are fighting hard to win the state on Nov. 6.
