Paul Ryan

Saying All the Right Things

Ryan speaks on guns and religion in Pennsylvania


After teaming up with Mitt Romney for a joint campaign rally in New Hampshire Monday, newly minted vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) spent Tuesday on his own near Pittsburgh, Pa.

Casual in khakis and waving a yellow "terrible towel" above his head in honor of the Steelers, Ryan appeared confident and at  ease as he spoke to a crowd assembled at a steel plant Tuesday morning.

"Hey, I am a Catholic deer hunter. I am happy to be clinging to my guns and my religion," Ryan told the crowd, according to Associated Press reports.
