“Trey Hardin, a Republican strategist and senior vice president at Vox Global, said that Ryan’s Midwestern roots would help the ticket throughout the Midwest – not just in Ohio and Wisconsin, but also in Pennsylvania, a state that has gone to the Democratic presidential candidate in every election since 1992 but some Republican strategists hope could be a swing state this cycle.
“It’s just a matter of being able to relate,” said Hardin.
Moreover, Ryan helps balance the ticket in a way that could be an asset for Romney given Ohio’s demographics.”
Ken Blackwell thinks Paul Ryan will appeal to voters in Ohio. Ryan also earned his graduate degree from Miami University in Oxford Ohio which may give him another boost.
Paul Ryan has many of the qualities that states like Ohio and Pennsylvania look for in a candidate. It could be that while this is a boost for Romney in Wisconsin, this Romney pick may also be a hit for these other states as well.
This is cautionary since Romney/Ryan decided to go bold and take up the debate on debt and the so called entitlements. Particularly with Medicare the Obama campaign is already running ads about Ryan killing granny. When do they ever stop with that nonsense?
I overheard Kirsten Powers, (leftist guest) on Fox say the demon rats are thrilled with the pick of Ryan. She said, “they are talking about the entitlement programs and that subject is “toxic”. Of course she is merely repeating what the WH campaign wants her to say like the good little girl foot soldier she is.
