Ryan's Hedging His Bets

Posted by Paul Constant on Wed, Sep 12, 2012 at 10:59 AM

From The Washington Post:

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan plans to begin airing ads in Wisconsin as he asks voters to elect him to an eighth House term that he hopes to never serve.

Contracts formalized Tuesday with at least one Milwaukee television station show that Ryan’s congressional ads will start airing Wednesday morning and go initially for two weeks. The Ryan congressional ads start in the same week as presidential ticket mate Mitt Romney’s commercials went on air in Wisconsin, although the cost for the two sets of ads are drawn from different campaign accounts.

That's prudent of Ryan—he's legally allowed to run for two seats in Wisconsin—but it looks really bad. I wonder if the Romney campaign ever floated the idea that Ryan drop out of his House race for a stronger appearance of a commitment to the Romney campaign? And if so, I wonder how loudly Ryan laughed when they asked him to do that?
