Vice president Joe Biden wrapped up day one of his Ohio tour. He made stops in Zanesville and Athens.
During his visit, he talked the President Obama plan for the future. He also expressed what he called sincere concern over their challengers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
"They're wrong, they're dead wrong, America is not in decline. We're going forward because of you," said Biden. "The very same policies they're running on today are what got us in this mess in the first place."
Rita Slavin was one of 675 people at the Athens event, and she said she has deep concerns as a retired teacher who relies on her pension.
"I am very worried about having a multi-millionaire for a president who does not understand the middle class at all," said Slavin.
Biden said his focus is directly on the working class and accused Romney of being a pioneer of outsourcing jobs overseas.
"I got news Governor Romney and Paul Ryan and I mean this, it's never, ever, ever, been a good bet to bet against the American people," added Biden.
The vice president will continue his tour on Sunday with stops in Portsmouth and Milford.
On Saturday, Romney discussed the U.S. military and criticized the President for possibly exposing the armed forces to huge spending cuts.
If the president and Congress don't reach a new budget agreement in the next few months, a series of automatic, across-the-board cuts will take effect, about half from the Pentagon.
Romney called that "unthinkable."
