GREENVILLE, N.C. — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is calling former President Jimmy Carter’s leadership “the good old days” compared to the last four years under President Barack Obama.
The Wisconsin congressman campaigned Monday at East Carolina University in Greenville, about 230 miles east of where thousands of Democrats were gathering at the Democratic National Convention.
Ryan says voters will hear a lot of words from Democrats in Charlotte this week. But he says they won’t hear evidence of how the nation is better off under Obama’s leadership.
Ryan says the only way to change the direction of the country is to change the president.
The message is part of a broader messaging strategy by Republicans in North Carolina and across the country this week.
