Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan made a campaign stop in Sparks, Nev., Friday.
The rally took place at a Peterbuilt Truck Parts and Equipment store. Ryan focused on how his running mate's plan for the economy would help small businesses and grow jobs.
He accused President Obama and the Democrats of advocating for larger government and more intervention in the economy. He said that he and Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney would change the role of government, if elected.
He also addressed the jobs numbers, which came out at 8:30am ET on Friday and said that the economy added just 96,000 jobs, well below the 150,000 that are needed just to keep up with new entrants to the workforce. The unemployment rate dropped to 8.1 percent, due in part to people giving up on looking for work.
"It's not working, and we've got a plan to fix this," Ryan told the crowd.
