EDITOR'S NOTE: CNN has sent dozens of reporters, producers, contributors and correspondents to the key battleground states to cover the final days of the 2012 election. The following dispatch is from CNN's Deirdre Walsh who is traveling with House Speaker John Boehner on an Ohio bus tour over this pre-election weekend.
Findlay, Ohio - As the green "Team Boehner" bus snaked north up Interstate 75 along the Western edge of Ohio on Saturday the House speaker wasn't likely to find many undecided voters to talk to about supporting GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The early stops on House Speaker John Boehner's three day statewide bus tour were all squarely focused on reinforcing how important it is for Republicans to come out in big numbers for the GOP ticket.

Boehner addressed sign waving GOP supporters in Lebanon, Beavercreek, and Lima, and as usual the Ohio Republican remained on message - criticizing President Obama for what he said were failed promises to boost the economy.
President Obama visited Lima a day earlier, and when Boehner spoke to volunteers at the local GOP office there on Saturday he slammed the president with a he repeated throughout the day asking - "Where are the jobs?"
Diane Maloney, who attended the Lima event with her husband, voted early already for Romney. Three days before the election she was surprised there were still some people on the fence.
"I can't believe there's people that don't feel one way or the other at this point."
At the speaker's fourth stop - here in Hancock County – Boehner said he was relying on long time Republicans in southwest Ohio to help deliver the state's 18 electoral votes for Romney.
"Most people don't believe much of what they see on TV or much of what they hear on the radio, and they really don't believe much of what they read in the newspapers," Boehner said, adding, "But they believe 95% of what they hear from their friends, their neighbors, and their relatives. That's why what you all of you are doing is so important."
Christian Pederson, a GOP supporter who attended the Findlay rally and saw Romney recently at another local event a week ago said he was proud that so much attention was focused on his home state. "People her are very grounded. We're a reserved people, but I think that when you look at where we are as a country we're the appropriate state to be deciding a lot of these issues."
