DERRY, N.H. (AP) — Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan put his own spin on New Hampshire’s “Live Free or Die” motto as he rallied supporters in the small but key battleground state.

Speaking in Derry Saturday morning, Ryan contrasted the economic stagnation he says will continue if President Barack Obama is re-elected with the prosperity he and Mitt Romney will create, saying the “Live Free or Die” state wants to “live free and prosper.”

It was Ryan’s second trip in as many weeks to New Hampshire, which backed Obama in 2008 but is considered a swing state this time. With an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released this week showing Obama ahead in New Hampshire, Ryan told supporters they need to reach out to former Obama voters who are now having second thoughts.
