Rep. Paul Ryan: Will also run in November for his Wisconsin House seat

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Rep. Paul Ryan, (R-Wisc.), tapped Saturday to be Mitt Romney's running mate, will also stay on the Wisconsin ballot as a House candidate. Wisconsin rules allow Ryan, a seven-term House member from Janesville, to be on the ballot twice.

I asked the Romney camp what Ryan planned to do and was told Ryan will stay on the WIsconsin ballot.

If the Romney/Ryan ticket wins a special election will be held to fill the Ryan seat.
