Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan made his first campaign stops in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

He kicked off a rally at Beaver Steel Serivces in Carnegie, Pa. by waving a "Terrible Towel" -- which is well-known to Pittsburgh sports fans.

"It's great to be here at a steel company in steel country," said Ryan, who added the country needs specific solutions to get the economy back on track.

"Twelve million jobs in four years, grow the economy at 4 percent. 500,000 jobs in Pennsylvania alone if we get this country and this economy rolling again," said Ryan.

The Wisconsin congressman then appeared at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at the American Helicopter Museum & Education Center located at 1220 American Boulevard in West Chester, Pa.

A campaign spokesperson tells NBC10 that 3,000 people rsvp'd to attend the event, which is open to the public.

"We're raising more money than ever, we have more volunteers than ever. We have all the mechanisms in place to have a successful November," said Val DiGiorgio, Chester county Republican Committee Chair.

Ryan wrapped up the evening with a fundraiser in Center City.

This is his second week on the campaign trail since Mitt Romney announced that Ryan would be his running mate on August 11.
