Vice President Joe Biden rallies La Crosse voters


LA CROSSE, Wisc. (KTTC) -- Following the Vice Presidential debate Thursday night, Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan hit the campaign trail, with one candidate making a stop in La Crosse.

While most polls are calling last night's debate a draw, both candidates are using any momentum they may have gained and are putting it on the campaign trail.

A victory rally? Or an attempt to corral the troops?

Either way, Vice President Joe Biden returned to the campaign trail Friday with a stop in La Crosse.

"Congressman Ryan and I, Governor Romney and the President, we have a fundamentally different vision for America, and quite frankly, a fundamentally different value set."

He did not waste any time mentioning the evenings of the evening prior.

"The differences that we have about the future of this country are, quite frankly, profound. There as profound as any Presidential campaign that I've observed and that I've been involved in. The truth is, I think people were listening. And if they were, they know what some of those differences are, and they know how those differences can fundamentally effect the direction of this country."

Congressman Paul Ryan was with Governor Mitt Romney in Ohio, continuing their nation-wide push to gain on the Obama campaign.

Vice President Biden made sure to bring the middle class to the forefront of the campaign.

"These people are like what my mom and dad were. The people in the neighborhoods I grew up in. 82% of them pay their payroll taxes and other taxes and at an effective rate higher than Romney pays his taxes."

The campaigns for both parties continue as November sixth gets ever closer.

Vice President Biden's visit to La Crosse leads right into President Obama's selection of stops next week, but not before President Obama and Governor Romney meet in a town hall meeting on Tuesday evening at Hofstra University.
