JANESVILLE- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney campaigned in Janesville Monday -- saying his goal is to win Wisconsin and the presidency in November.
It's been rumored Janesville Rep. Paul Ryan could be Romney's running mate.
It was a packed and very warm room in Janesville for supporters to see Mitt Romney. "Americans struggling today depend on us, our kids are hoping we'll do it. We will do it, it's going to happen, it's going to happen in Wisconsin, you're going to be the deciding voice," said Romney.
A deciding voice in a race that's growing closer. Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is hoping with the help of the hometown native, Paul Ryan, that Romney will win Wisconsin in November.
"We need a leader who has a vision for this country, a bedrock of principals. We need a leader, that leader is Mitt Romney," spoke Ryan.
Governor Walker was among the speakers Monday and he told TODAY'S TMJ4 about Paul Ryan's as a VP candidate. "I'm a homer. I'd love to have Paul, I think he's probably it if you really want to tackle the budget and economic crisis, he's the guy, there's nobody better," said Walker.
Paul Ryan previously campaigned for Romney in the presidential primary.
According to U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, "I think Paul Ryan would be an excellent choice (for VP)."
But Democrats say even if Romney gets a boost in Wisconsin from a possible Romney-Ryan ticket, that President Obama will win again here in Wisconsin.
"What's bad for the people of Wisconsin are Mitt Romney's ideas and plans. He's tried policies and theories that have failed," said Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate.
Paul Ryan left without talking to reporters, fueling the VP rumors.
