As Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and his Vice Presidential choice Paul Ryan hit the campaign trail in Virginia, back in Ryan's home state of Wisconsin the 42-year old congressman gets mixed reviews. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARK SPAHOS, WISCONSIN RESIDENT, SAYING: "I think we need more fiscal responsibility in politics today and I think Paul brings that to the table and I think that's his greatest asset. Spending and spending and not having the money and printing more money to solve the world's problems is not the way to go." (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARYAM POLLEY, WISCONSIN RESIDENT, SAYING: "I'm very much for everyone working together as one people, not sure that Paul Ryan or Mitt Romney can do that." Ryan is a favorite of the conservative Tea Party, an anti-tax, limited-government movement that helped Republicans take over the House of Representatives in 2010. Romney is betting on Ryan to help him in his quest for the White House.
