Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was apparently so touched by vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s speech at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday that tears rolled from his eyes.
“When Gov. Romney asked me to join the ticket, I said, ‘Let’s get this done.’ And that’s exactly what we are going to do,” Ryan said.
The cameras then went looking for a reaction from the crowd, and they found a sobbing Gov. Walker, a tear streaking down his cheek.

Following Ryan’s speech, Walker told MSNBC why he got emotional hearing the vice presidential candidate’s message.
“I know Paul well, I grew up down the road from him. What he said was not reading off the teleprompter; what he said was his life. When he talked about his dad, told us about his mother, those stories are real,” Walker said.
