Tim Ryan, at ‘Dayton Workers First’ rally, stumps for jobs, less ‘big government’

VANDALIA — U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, stumping for votes in the final days before Election Day, asked voters on Thursday night to help him fight for more jobs in Ohio and “preserve the big government staying out of our bedroom.”

The Democrat congressman from Ohio held a “Dayton Workers First” rally at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 82, where he spoke to a room full of supporters.

“There’s no economic freedom is there’s no jobs in the United States and that’s what we got to fight to bring back to this country,” he said. “We have to make sure we preserve the big government staying out of our bedroom and big government staying out of our doctors’ offices.”

The Miami Valley has continues to be a busy place for Ryan and his Republican opponent, JD Vance. Both are vying to fill the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Rob Portman.

“The Miami Valley is always really important in Ohio elections,” Vance said in an interview with News Center 7 this week. " I think in part because I’m from here and because people know me here.”

Vance will take yet another opportunity to shore up supporters and persuade undecided voters on Monday, Nov. 7, in Dayton when he is scheduled to speak at a rally featuring former President Donald Trump.

“A lot of people here, a lot of voters here and I know this is an area both me and President Trump love a great deal. And so not surprising that we decided to do the rally here.”
