Ryan urged about 1,100 supporters at a rainy rally in Belmont to vote early for the GOP ticket, telling them they are in the “battleground of battleground states.”

The area is close to West Virginia and in a region of Ohio where the Romney campaign thinks it can swing voters its way because of concerns about the economy and the future of the coal industry under President Barack Obama.

Ryan told supporters they could be the “linchpin” in the election.

The head of the AFL-CIO says claims by Romney and Ryan they will serve the people of coal regions are baseless and insulting.

Before heading to Ohio, Ryan spoke to an enthusiastic crowd of about 500 people at a hanger near the Pittsburgh International Airport, saying Romney can win Pennsylvania.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday found Romney now trails Democratic President Barack Obama by just 4 percentage points among likely Pennsylvania voters.

Biden in Florida: “Romnesia” spreading to Ryan

Vice President Joe Biden is picking up on his boss’ new word, telling a crowd in Florida that “Romnesia” must be contagious because it’s spreading to Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.

A day after President Barack Obama used “Romnesia” to describe what he says are Republican Mitt Romney’s changing positions, Biden worked it into his 38-minute speech today in St. Augustine.

Biden told about 950 people gathered in a basketball gym that Ryan is giving a new explanation for the budget he proposed in the House, saying it’s not cutting the budget, but rather slowing its growth.

Earlier, Biden stopped by an Orlando-area campaign office to greet volunteers as part of a two-day swing through crucial Florida.
