And one man in Janesville drew a crowd when he voted. Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan hugged poll workers he knew from his teen years and then cast his ballot as one of his sons looked on.
Ryan, his wife, Janna, and their three children, Liza, Charlie and Sam, arrived at 8:50 a.m. at the Hedberg Library on S. Main St. in Janesville and moved to the front of the line of about 30 people. Ryan voted in Ward 13 in a reading room in south central Janesville.
Ryan apologized to the other voters as he moved up to the table where poll workers looked for names of voters. (JS Online)
Putz. It’s about par for the course for a Wisconsin Republican, though.
On a semi-related note, I was at the library this afternoon to do library stuff and it dawned on me. I picked the wrong day to go the library. Groceries and I dropped our books in the slot quickly and left so that Janesville voters would have one less car to fight for a parking spot.
