MILWAUKE - Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan said Wisconsin can "complete its journey" by electing Mitt Romney as president and putting former Gov. Tommy Thompson in the U.S. Senate.
Ryan spoke Sunday at a $250-per-couple fundraiser for Thompson at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.
Ryan said he, Gov. Scott Walker, and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus are all proteges of Thompson, who served 14 years as governor. Ryan said they are all part of what he called the Thompson "farm team."
Walker, Priebus, and Thompson also all addressed the crowd of about 300.
Ryan spoke about Walker's successful win in June's recall election and Priebus's work as the head of the RNC after leading the Wisconsin state party, then said Wisconsin can complete its journey in November.
