Romney-Ryan rally moves outside due to crowds

The speaking program is underway at the Waukesha County Expo Center for tonight's rally with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

To accommodate the large crowd that has amassed, the rally has been moved outside.

A small group of protesters stood outside the fenced-in rally area chanting "no Romney economy."

Among speakers so far were Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, AG JB Van Hollen and U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy.

Kleefisch told the crowd to take the same "passion and energy" they showed during the failed recall of Gov. Scott Walker recall to send Romney and Ryan to the White House.

She quipped that "Romney and Ryan are going to give Barack Obama the R&R he really needs."

As AG J.B Van Hollen took the stage, the crowd chanted "voter ID, voter ID!"

Van Hollen promised he is doing all he can to try to get the law is in place for the November election.

With Ryan and Romney, he said the nation will send an "informed, intelligent and prepared group of men to the White House."

He said the country now has the opportunity to get rid of Obama and to repeal "Obamacare," something he said the Supreme Court "would not stand up and do."

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Gov. Scott Walker are slated to speak before Romney and Ryan take the stage.

Before speakers addressed the crowd, all four GOP U.S. Senate candidates made their rounds through the crowd, hoping to lock in some last-minute votes ahead of Tuesday's primary.
