Goal Thermometer
Paul Ryan is not only running as Mitt Romney's running mate, but is also running for an eighth term in his House seat, WI-01.  That gives us a unique opportunity--we can defeat Ryan twice in the same election, and thus ensure he goes back to Janesville in January.  And for only the second time since his first run for Congress, Ryan faces a credible opponent in Rob Zerban.  But Zerban's going to need a lot of help turning the hot lights on Ryan's record.

Ryan represents one of the most swingy districts in the nation.  It was R+1 before redistricting, and from what I've heard it's R+2 now.  And yet, Ryan has a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 91.  That's way, way, way too conservative for this district.  

However, WI-01 takes in a large chunk of the expensive Milwaukee market, including Racine and Kenosha.  So Zerban's going to need a lot of help to make his case.  Click here to help Zerban tell WI-01 voters to vote against Paul Ryan twice

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
