TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's son Matt Romney was in Northwest Ohio Monday. Romney talked to volunteers hoping to convince the people of Ohio to vote for his father.
"When I get out and meet people you know that are at the grassroots, that are out fighting everyday for our democracy it's very humbling and inspiring for me," said Romney.
Romney said it has been an eye opening experience seeing people come out in support of his father, who he says is the answer to the failing economy and the high unemployment rates.
"We need my dad more than ever, to get in and turn this economy around. He's done it before, he's done it in the private sector, the non-profit sector he's also done it, at the Olympics, as governor of Mass and we just need him to do it at a larger level now," said Romney.
Matt Romney is not the only one campaigning in our area. Paul Ryan was in Lima on Monday.
President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be in town on Wednesday. Congressman Bob Latta said there is a reason for all of that.
"You know, Ohio is that battleground state, and I think, it shows they know the importance of northwest, north central Ohio and I guarantee you this won't be the last time we see them, they'll be back ," said Latta.
Congressman Latta said Romney has the experience needed to turn our country around. Latta said he believes these trips to Ohio will work out in Romney's favor and he will be able to sway voters in his direction.
"Ohio's been very fortunate, we're below the national rate of unemployment, but I credit that to governor Kasich and with what the republican legislator here has done. We have a very friendly state to business. People know that they can get their businesses here, and keep them here," said Latta.
