SWANTON, Ohio (AP) â€” Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan says a Romney administration on Day One will approve a pipeline that would run from Canada to U.S. refineries in Texas.
Ryan told supporters near Toledo on Monday that approving the Keystone XL pipeline will create thousands of construction and factory jobs.
President Barack Obama earlier this year objected to the pipeline's proposed route over environmental concerns but has encouraged a shorter project from Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast.
Ryan says the United States has the energy resources in North America to become energy independent within eight years.
Ryan's stop in Ohio is kicking off another busy week for candidates on the campaign trail in the prized battleground state. Both Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will be in Ohio on Tuesday.
