Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan has a serious case of Romney Fever. In fact, he’s so utterly enthusiastic and supremely confident about the prospects of the Romney/Ryan campaign in November that he’s decided to remain on the ballot for his congressional seat.
Ryan, of Janesville, can run both for vice president and for re-election to Congress thanks to a 1968 law that permits a candidate to be on the ballot twice, but only if he or she is running for president or vice president.
Ryan faces Democrat Rob Zerban of Kenosha in November.
Zerban has raised $1.2 million in his race. Ryan has raised $4.3 million as of July 25, according to the Federal Election Commission. Zerban is a former small businessman who sold his last business in 2008.
Thanks, Mitt, for selecting me as your running mate. But if you don’t mind, I’m going to keep my day job — just in case. You understand, don’t you?
You can cut the excitement with a knife.
