CHICAGO (WSAU-Wheeler News) Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan says he'd love to see Mitt Romney run for president again. The two ran on the same ticket in 2012, when they lost to President Obama. Yesterday they shared the stage again in Chicago, as Romney helped Ryan promote his new book which came out this week. It was the first time they appeared together since Ryan was Romney's vice-presidential running mate two years ago.
The former Massachusetts governor has repeatedly said he would not run for the White House again, after losing in the primaries in 2008 before his 2012 defeat. Ryan kidded that the "third time's the charm" for Romney -- and Romney joked that Ryan would not be a bad president himself.
Ryan, the House Budget chairman, is often mentioned as a 2016 White House hopeful. Ryan says he won't decide whether the pursue the presidency until after this fall's mid-term elections.
