Hedging His Bet

Paul Ryan is all gung-ho to be the next vice president, and he’s really sure he and Mitt Romney are going to take Washington by storm, right?

So why is he signing up to run ads for his re-election to Congress in Wisconsin?

Contracts formalized Tuesday with at least one Milwaukee television station show that Ryan’s congressional ads will start airing Wednesday morning and go initially for two weeks. The Ryan congressional ads start in the same week as presidential ticket mate Mitt Romney’s commercials went on air in Wisconsin, although the cost for the two sets of ads are drawn from different campaign accounts.

If he was that confident of winning with Romney — and if he had any scruples — he’d resign his seat in Congress.

Neither seem to be the case.
