ASHWAUBENON (WAOW) -

Officials say one-thousand people filled the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay on Sunday.

They came to hear the vice president talk about jobs, healthcare and revitalizing the thriving middle class.

Lines formed outside of the museum hours ahead of Vice President Joe Biden's visit.

"I'm excited to see all of these people," said Anthony Doubea.

The theme of the campaign stop: four more years.

The vice president used the visit to connect with Wisconsin voters.

"We always started home room with a prayer in the catholic school and at our school it was the name of the father, the son, the Holy Ghost and Vince Lombardi," said Biden.

But Biden quickly shifted to issues dominating the campaign.

Issues like the economy.

"Lost jobs, stagnant wages, watch the equity in your home evaporate," said Biden.

Biden also touched based on healthcare.

"We are for medicare, they are for voucher care," said Biden.

But Biden also made it clear, with Ryan on the Republican ticket, Wisconsin will be a battleground state come November.

"I don't need your boos, I need your votes," said Biden.

Votes that Biden hopes will keep the current administration and their policies intact.

"We're on our way to rebuilding this country, stronger than it was before the recession," said Biden.

People who attended the event say, no matter who wins in November, there'es work to be done.

"I see people having problems and I agree with him, it's the middle class that is hurting," said Peggy Krause.

Biden hopes voters will give the president another four years.

"With your help, we will win Wisconsin and we will with the presidency," said Biden.

Republican Leaders in Wisconsin said Biden's visit is a sign democrats are worried about winning Wisconsin.

Volunteers worked the phones at the G.O.P. Victory Center in Green Bay Sunday.

Officials from both parties said November's election will be close.

Republicans argue the current administration has failed to provide big issues, including job creation.
