Video: Brownback meets with Romney supporters in Ohio

Gov. Sam Brownback hit the campaign trail for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney today, visiting with voters in Ohio.

In the northeast Ohio town of Ravenna, Brownback met with about 20 Romney supporters who waited for the Kansas governor to emerge from a Romney-Ryan tour bus.

“It’s a beautiful day in Ohio,” Brownback said the crowd. “We’re going to deliver Kansas for Romney, so I needed to come to Ohio and get a state that needs to get in the collar from Romney.”

According to the Record-Courier newspaper:

Brownback spoke before a bus
emblazoned with the slogans “More
jobs, more take-home pay.” He said
Romney’s policies would “stop
government trickle down” and that
Romney intends to “build the economy
and cut back on government spending.”

After brief remarks to encourage early
voters for the Republican ticket,
Brownback stayed on, chatting with
people and doing interviews with
reporters from a Japanese network and
TV 2 from Kent State University.

In Youngstown, Brownback told Romney backers to vote early.

“Frankly, the other side has beaten us too often on the ground game,” Brownback said. “We’ve not been good at it, but this time around, the numbers really favor us.”
