FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Paul Ryan rallied thousands of supporters at his second stop in Virginia in one day, sending a Fredericksburg crowd home with plenty of time to watch the second presidential debate.

Mitt Romney's running mate addressed a receptive crowd Tuesday night, calling the election three weeks away one that will change the nation for a generation.

Ryan touched upon many of the themes he did hours earlier in Lynchburg. He said President Obama's policies had weakened the nation. He said the country could not afford four more years of an Obama presidency.

Ryan also said the swing state of Virginia would have a big say in the Nov. 6 election.

Supporters chanted "USA, USA, USA" several times during Ryan's 20-minute address.
