U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan will be on the ballot twice Nov. 6 now that he has been picked by Republican Mitt Romney as his running mate. Ryan will remain on the ballot for re-election to his seat in the House of Representatives, said Susan Jacobson, finance director/campaign manager for his House campaign. Ryan represents the 1st Congressional district that includes Janesville, Kenosha and much of southeastern Wisconsin, including portions of Waukesha and Milwaukee counties. He has been won election to the seat seven times. Ryan (R-Janesville) could run both for vice president and for re-election to Congress thanks to a 1968 law that permits a candidate to be on the ballot twice, but only if he or she is running for president or vice president. Ryan faces Democrat Rob Zerban of Kenosha in November. Zerban has raised $1.2 million in his race. Ryan has raised $4.3 million as of July 25, according to the Federal Election Commission. Zerban is a former small businessman who sold his last business in 2008.

Not to mention Lloyd Bensen in 1988.
"His"? Is the writer suggesting he actually built it?
The average Freeper would pass for a genius there.
So, assuming Ryan wins both elections, I wonder who Walker will appoint to fill the seat?
House seats aren’t appointed, there would have to be a special election.
The seat would remain vacant until Walker called a special election.
Governors appoint U.S. Senators, if needed, but not Representatives.
I bet that Van Wanggard runs for the seat...
