Paul Ryan Fires Up Convention
At the Republican National Convention last night, Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan formally accepted his party's nomination for Vice President.
Ryan's speech was the headline event at the second night of the convention. Delegates and party members also heard remarks from former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
But Ryan is who everyone came to hear.
"Mr. Chairman, delegates, and fellow citizens: I am honored by the support of this convention for vice president of the United States," Ryan began. "I accept the duty to help lead our nation out of a jobs crisis and back to prosperity – and I know we can do this."
