“When Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan campaign together in Michigan on Friday, it will likely give Democrats a chance to highlight how the GOP ticket differs on the auto bailout,” USA Today writes.
USA Today: “Look deeper on the Wisconsin House member's list of priorities, military and foreign policy experts say, and you'll see a commitment to standard GOP principles: support for robust Pentagon spending and opposition to President Obama's foreign policy. He takes advice from the American Enterprise Institute, a hawkish think tank favored by Republicans."
Will Ryan bring Wisconsin? The University of Minnesota’s Smart Politics blog notes, “The last eight vice-presidential nominees from the Midwest have carried their home state dating back to 1944.”
