WESTLAKE, OH (WOIO) -

Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan was in town on Tuesday.

The U.S. Congressman spoke before a packed house at the Westlake Recreation Center on Hilliard Boulevard.

Shortly after the event started, a heckler was escorted out. The crowd drowned him out by chanting USA.

Some Romney-Ryan supporters are hoping rallies like this will reach into the larger mostly Democratic inner-cities to pull out a few votes.

President's statement on visit

"Strong sales for all 3 auto makers announced today prove that our auto industry is coming roaring back in spite of Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan, who would have let the auto industry wither on the vine along with the 1 in 8 jobs in Ohio that it supports. So the question remains for Paul Ryan in Westlake today, surrounded by communities that depend on the strength of the auto industry: How do you account for all of the Ohio jobs that Mitt Romney would have lost had we listened to his advice to let the American auto industry go bankrupt?"
