A homecoming for newly chosen vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has caused the Wisconsin Republican to get a little emotional. The congressman took the stage Sunday evening in Waukesha, looked out over a fairgrounds crowd of thousands and wiped away tears. Ryan was named Saturday as Republican Mitt Romney's running mate. The rally was a brief stop home before Ryan embarks on his first solo swing to battleground states like Iowa and Colorado. Ryan told the home-state crowd that his "veins run with chees, bratwurst" and local beers. Romney relished in the showing, too, saying it proves he made the right pick. Wisconsin has been a hard state for Republicans to crack. No presidential nominee has won its electoral votes since 1984, although some have come excruciatingly close.
Dry and cool for a few days then turning much warmer by the end of the week. A rather dry pattern as well.
