How can a man who's plan is to take trillions away from the old the sick and the poor, so they can give 70% of it to the wealthy. That one thing spells out the whole story for Ryan.

So if I read this right, the fact that Paul Ryan is from Wisconsin--Wisconsin--may help nudge Minnesota--my Minnesota--to Romney. Um, politely, no. Minnesota would never, ever vote for a person like Mitt Romney. We value independence of thought, not empty suits.

"With Ryan, GOP hopes to turn Minnesota red" --- If this state turned red I'm pretty sure we'd see a big exodus of urban progressives. I grew up in a red state, and very glad to get out of that red state. There are just about no red states I'd like to live. Please.. go to the deep south and see what real conservative policies can do.

Just because Ryan is from a neighboring state (his district is actually a lot closer to Chicago than to Minnesota) doesn't mean that we will be foolish enough to support him. What does Paul Ryan have to offer Minnesotans? Nothing but more expensive health care, more expensive education, war with Iran and less money in our bank accounts. He's a walking disaster for middle class voters, and Minnesotans are smart enough to know it.

More fuzzy math based on wishful thinking from the GOP. Who's surprised?

Pure Fantasy. I can tell you why Potus and vice Potus are spending time here in two words...Fund Raising.

Obviously, they don't know that for the most part Minnesotans don't really like Wisconsinites.

New York Times: Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.

Are you kidding me GOP? Not in a million years will Minnesota vote red. We are way too smart here in Minnesota to vote for a Romney/Ryan ticket and no, we don't blindly follow Wisconsin. Thank you but I will keep my money rather than vote for a team that will rob the poor and middle class to give to the wealthy so they can create what? More minimum wage jobs tending to their gardens?

Don't even know where to start....nomeds: I am a proud Minnesotan and I happen to like Wisconsities - what would possibly make them not like them? Childish statement. endotherm and goldengoph3r: Again, I am a proud Minnesotan who WILL be voting for Romney! Why would I vote for the current President when the economy is worse off then before he became President. He had a chance at his Hope and Change and did not deliver. And don't tell me the Repubs aren't working with him. He had 2.5 years of Dem control and had carte blanc, but guess he would rather wait to blame it on the Republicans! I fear for our country if he is reelected!
