In an ad for his congressional reelection campaign Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan talks to two factory workers about the economy.
In addition to his campaign for vice president, Ryan is seeking an eighth term representing the Janesville, Wis., area in Congress; the dual campaigns are legal under Wisconsin law. He is running against Kenosha County Supervisor Ron Zerban (D) for the congressional seat. Ryan's.
The 30-second ad, airing on Madison television stations, features Ryan discussing economic growth with three workers in a factory, as two of the workers nod along with Ryan's pitch (while wearing ear plugs). The group does not appear to be next to active machinery during the ad.
The ad starts with one of the workers asking the seven-term congressman how the government can spur economic development and Ryan launching into a pitch similar to what he has discussed nationally as the vice presidential nominee. Ryan, in safety goggles, outlines a need to cut taxes and end "ridiculous regulations," saying the country needs "the right solutions" to create jobs.
“We need to end the growing government control of the economy," Ryan says in the ad.
