MILWAUKEE -- Paul Ryan came up short in his vice presidential bid, but his backup plan worked.
The Wisconsin congressman easily won re-election Tuesday night to the U.S. House seat he has held since 1998. He also won his previous congressional elections by comfortable margins.
I am posting this because I have friends in the Milwaukee area who lost big tonight when their candidate Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama.
Well, at least their local congressman won his re-election, so they can take some solace in that victory.
