PAINESVILLE, Ohio -- With just days before the presidential election, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is making many quick stops in Ohio.

He is recognizing voters who are supporting the Romney-Ryan ticket.

Boehner spent some time at the Lake County GOP headquarters in Painesville on Saturday evening.

He thanked supporters and volunteers for all of their efforts this election season, but he stressed that nothing counts until Tuesday.

The Republican made sure to explain how he believes President Barack Obama hasn’t followed through on his promises over the last four years.

"He said he'd end the gridlock, and find ways to work across the aisle, but the only time he's ever worked across the aisle is when he was getting what he wanted," said Boehner.

Dozens of people in Painesville stood in support of Boehner’s view. Many also explained to FOX8 why they are supporting the Romney-Ryan ticket.

"We have over a trillion-dollar deficit, and that is due to the stimulus packages that were passed during his administration,” said Emmanual Guillory. “That overt spending took place to help the less fortunate but at the same time by giving more than we can afford, we are hurting more Americans than we are helping."

“I have a very strong belief in God and Jesus, and I think people are very disillusioned. We have a president who is a celebrity, who golfs more than he goes to church," said Jill Hovater. “It really hit home when Mitt Romney talked about his faith in God," she said.

Republicans in Ohio know that this is a swing state, and that’s why many are hoping the Get Out the Vote Bus Tour will make a difference.

Boehner talked about job creation and the fact that millions of Americans are still unemployed under Obama’s leadership.

The Speaker of the House is expected to make 13 stops across the state before Tuesday.

Romney himself will be in Ohio Sunday for a victory rally at the I-X Center in Cleveland. Doors open at 11:15 a.m., and the program is set to begin at 1:50 p.m.

The event is open to the public, but you must have a ticket. Click here for more information.
