Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is making a final campaign push. He was in Panama City for a rally Saturday. Several thousand voters greeted him, his wife and children.

"That was the best thing I've seen in a long time," said one Panama City resident as she left the rally Saturday night.

The crowd left more excited than when they arrived. Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan had a lot to say, and voters are ready for Tuesday.

"Whether it's the little guy on his dad's shoulders or his dad, or his grandad this is the most important election in our generation," said Ryan.

Saturday republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate began their final sprint. Ryan hit the campaign trail hard in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida.

No surprise, the economy, what many say is the most important issue in this election was a main topic at the rally in Panama City.

"We've got to stop spending money we don't have. We've got to balance this budget. We've got to stop borrowing from our children's future," said Ryan.

"That's what our country needs right now. we need a business president. someone to go in and jump start the economy. there are a lot of issues out there, but right now we're definitely in need of that," said Aaron Davis, Panama City resident.

Florida is an important swing state. The last poll shows the race is deadlocked at this point, but try telling that to these voters.

"I think Florida is definitely going for Romney. There's a lot of excitement. I can't wait till Tuesday," said one voter.

"I can't wait till Tuesday and Wednesday. He's going to be the next president of the United States," said another voter leaving the rally.

"Florida is key. You know that. Florida is everything. Three more days. Three more days. Let's get this done," said Ryan.

Three more days, or four more years? The country decides Tuesday.
Saturday, Romney spent the day focusing on New Hampshire, Iowa and Colorado.
