It’s not enough to budge my prediction of McDonnell, but this article makes the case that Ryan’s odds of becoming Romney’s VP candidate are improving:
The obvious reason for Ryan’s rise in the veepstakes is his week spent campaigning with Romney in Wisconsin following an endorsement of the former Massachusetts governor last Friday.
Wrote the Post’s Phil Rucker, who has been with Romney throughout the campaign:
“Since Ryan endorsed Romney last Friday, he was at the candidate’s side at every turn — introducing him before formal speeches, vouching for him at town hall meetings and joining him as they eyed cherry pie, picked up fried cheese curds and handed out sub sandwiches. (Romney gave away turkey; Ryan, ham and cheese.)”
