Mitt Romney’s newly minted running mate returned to his college roots yesterday campaigning at Miami University in Oxford.

Rep. Paul Ryan told a crowd of several thousand at his alma mater that the Republican ticket will strengthen the economy and grow jobs.

“We’re going to offer you solutions,” Ryan said. “That’s what the Romney plan for a stronger middle class is all about: growth, opportunity, jobs.

“It’s a plan to create 12 million jobs in the first four years. 452,000 jobs in Ohio alone if we get this economy growing.”

Ryan says Ohio’s coal and natural gas supplies are prime territory for driving job creation. He also looks forward to debating Medicare saying that’s an issue he believes the Romney/Ryan team will win.

Following a recent theme from the Romney camp, Ryan chastised the Obama campaign for a spate of negative ads he says are based on anger and division.

From Oxford he travels to the Canton area for a rally Thursday morning.
