Both President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney are spending a huge amount of time in Ohio during the final few days of the campaign.
As president Obama spoke at Lima senior high school, Governor Romney stumped in Cleveland.
President Obama talked job creation and retention to workers, using today's job numbers as proof his plan will keep jobs in western Ohio.
The presidential race is down its final days, and the candidates continue to focus on Ohio.
As people lined up for hours beforehand--
"Jobs. Which is everywhere. Jobs," says Joyce Jordan, who stood in line for several hours.
"And our tank plant. Ford Motor Company. And jobs and stuff like that," says Vanessa Adams.
They say they wanted to hear about jobs.
"Jobs, that's he's increased jobs," says Patricia Campion, who just moved to Ohio from Minnesota.
"We wish that we could get better things going in in Ohio than what they have been," says Willie Thompson.
And that's exactly what he gave them.
"Remember in 2008, we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. Today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in October than at any time in the last eight months," says president Obama.
Paul Clemmons of the local electrical workers union says President Obama's policies work for western Ohio, and Governor Mitt Romney's plan would cost the region jobs and money.
"It could be millions of dollars of work at stake," says Clemmons.
As Governor Romney campaigned in Cleveland today, President Obama criticized Romney's visit to Defiance last week, where he spoke to autoworkers.
"We tried the other folks' ideas, they don't work. We tried those. For the eight years before I took office, we tried their ideas," president Obama says.
These women say they've always voted republican- but that is changing this year.
"Because I liked Mr. Bush. Well, three days ago, I voted for President Obama," says Nadine Rader. She says she was born in France, and has lived in the U.S. for 39 years.
"I don't like Romney, plain and simple," says 87-year-old Kathy Parsons.
