Romney Chooses Paul Ryan of Wisconsin

Going for the vote in Wisconsin, Republican challenger selected Paul Ryan for his running mate.  Wisconsin has in recent years turned more Republican--how's that going for you, Wisconsin?

Conventional wisdom had Romney choosing Rubio or Jeb Bush from Florida to try to win that state.  Florida has far more electoral votes than Wisconsin.  And Rick Santorum, the party's best choice, not only did not win the nomination but won't even be on the ticket.  Word is that Romney and Santorum never did really get along well.  And with Romney's stance on the issues, it's no wonder.

We'll have further analysis of the pick in the days to come.
