Ryan Stumps In Ohio

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan says the idea that Mitt Romney would raise taxes on the middle-class is a misperception being spread by negative ads from the Obama campaign.

Ryan was asked by a supporter during a campaign stop Wednesday in Columbus to dispel the notion. The congressman says he and Romney have cut taxes in the past and plan to continue to do so if elected.  Several dozen protesters chanted and waved signs outside the event. Ryan also visited the Cleveland Browns training Complex in Berea yesterday with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. While addressing the players, Ryan confused Browns backup quarterback Colt McCoy for starter Brandon Weeden, leading to a few awkward moments and laughs before the candidate realized his mistake.
