Ahead of his much-anticipated speech tonight at the convention, the New York Times has a look at Paul Ryan's rise through the Republican Party.
The best part: An initial reaction to Ryan's first run for Congress.
A columnist for The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel openly mocked him. “Ryan, a high school senior, has apparently decided to run for national office as part of a school project or something,” the columnist wrote. “It’s an admirable message for the youth in our community. How did he raise the money anyway, selling lemonade? Although it’s almost laughable someone so young would think he actually has a chance to win.”
Ryan's speech will be delivered in the 10 p.m. hour.
