Republicans believe with Paul Ryan on the ticket, the GOP can win Wisconsin for the first time since Ronald Reagan.
"I encouraged him (Ryan) to spend as much time in the state and asked the Romney campaign for (Ryan) to spend as much time in the state and Romney for that matter," said Wisconsin delegate Steve King to TODAY'S TMJ4. "I think it is winnable but we can not take it for granted."
