Even though Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) won re-election at the same time he was on the national ticket, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes he was crushed in his hometown of Janesville, WI by challenger Rob Zerban (D), 55% to 44%. Ryan had never lost Janesville in a re-election campaign before.
In addition, the Obama-Biden ticket defeated Romney-Ryan ticket in Janesville by a whopping 25 points, 62% to 37%.
Remember when Paul Ryan was going to swoop in and bring substance to the campaign trail? He was suppose to be the “bold” choice.
As a bonus, here’s Mister Substance pretending to honor Labor Day last year.
Janesville is no fan of Ryan.
