Biden and Ryan deliver vastly different messages in Iowa

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is telling voters in Iowa that the nation needs Mitt Romney to reduce government spending. 

Vice President Joe Biden is in Iowa too, telling voters that Romney is "totally out of touch" with the realities that everyday Americans face. 

The running mates visited Iowa on Monday to present two widely different views on the nation's future. They are scheduled to meet in a nationally televised debate next month. 

Biden visited the Mississippi River town of Burlington while Ryan spoke to voters in the capital of Des Moines. 

Ryan says that cutting back on government spending makes sense to the frugal residents of Iowa and those in his home state of Wisconsin. Biden assures Iowans that President Barack Obama understands their lives.
