Paul Ryan To Greeley Crowd: 'We Can Only Take 5 More Days' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan and his wife Janna held a rally in Greeley, Colo. Thursday joined by country music star Lee Greenwood.

Ryan was introduced by Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway and Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) at the Greeley Stampede Grounds.

"Hey Greeley, are you gonna help us win this thing?" Ryan asked once he arrived onstage. "Five more days," he added.

Ryan told the crowd that President Obama would be back in Colorado to "explain why he needs four more years to get it right."

Ryan told the crowd that the President couldn't run on his record, calling it broken and echoing Mitt Romney's earlier statement mocking the president for wanting to create a Secretary of Business.

Ryan called Romney a "proven leader who knows how to create jobs."

"Look, in 2008 it sounded great. All this hope and all this change. Unfortunately, it’s disastrous," said Ryan before adding at the end, "We can only take five more days."

Ryan cancelled three events in the battleground state earlier in the week on Tuesday after Hurricane Sandy killed 75 and left much of the east devastated without power.

Romney and his wife Ann are set to campaign in Colorado on Saturday, and Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus is expected to visit El Paso and Mesa County to encourage early voting.

President Obama is set hold a rally in Boulder later in the day.
