CINCINNATI, OHIO--GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan touched down for a Monday rally at an airfield here where he told supporters to vote early, as the Romney/Obama campaigns are running drives to lock down support as soon as possible in this crucial battleground state.

"You know you have a big say," Ryan said, with his campaign plane used as a backdrop. "...You understand your opportunity, right?" Ryan stressed his Ohio connection--he is a graduate of Miami of Ohio.

Ryan also told the crowd to appeal to disappointed Obama voters-a strategy the Romney/Ryan ticket has been increasingly using since the GOP convention in Tampa.

Earlier Monday, Ryan held a town hall in Waukesa, Wisc. After the rally, Ryan flies to New York for a fund-raiser.
