Go inside “Paul Ryan’s Rise” Wednesday on WISC-TV3

News 3 is proud to air a newly-produced Campaign 2012 special detailing Paul Ryan’s rise from Wisconsin congressman to his selection as Mitt Romney’s running mate on the 2012 GOP presidential ticket.

“Paul Ryan’s Rise” is a solid hour of original stories produced since Mitt Romney made his choice for VP. The program includes Ryan’s interview with News 3 political reporter Jessica Arp, the only post-selection interview granted to a local journalist. 

Ryan’s family and friends share untold stories of Ryan’s early years, while News 3 reporters probe how Ryan has helped his hometown as a congressman, why he remains quiet on social issues, and if entitlement programs in still-struggling Janesville would suffer under Ryan’s economic plans.

The special will air Wednesday at 8 p.m., immediately preceding CBS News coverage of Paul Ryan’s address to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

Due to the scheduling of “Paul Ryan’s Rise,” Wednesday night’s episode of “Criminal Minds” will air late night immediately following “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” at approximately 12:52 a.m.
