Romney lost but Ryan won

Paul Ryan’s election night wasn’t all bad. He lost the vice presidency, but state law allowed him to be on the ballot for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, too. He won re-election easily and returned to work Tuesday as House Budget Committee chairman. He told ABC News that President Obama won “fair and square,” but that the election was no mandate to raise taxes. “There are other ways of getting more revenue into our government without damaging the economy, and that’s the kind of thing we hope to achieve,” Ryan said, suggesting that they “take away the loopholes.” Ryan also said Mitt Romney’s campaign was “exactly the kind of campaign that I would’ve run had I been on the top of the ticket” – gracious talk, but not what Republicans looking to win in 2016 will be looking for.
