Janesville election night party supports Rep. Paul Ryan


JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Republicans hope the state's own Congressman Paul Ryan will be the next vice president of the United States, ending a 28-year losing streak, which dates back to when Ronald Reagan won re-election in a nationwide landslide.

But even with Ryan of Janesville as Mitt Romney's running mate, President Barack Obama isn't conceding Wisconsin or its 10 electoral votes. Polls have shown a tight presidential race in Wisconsin, which Obama won by 14 points in 2008.

Ryan for Congress will hold an election night watch party with local candidates at the Holiday Inn Express Convention Center in Janesville. It starts at 8 p.m.

Tonight on 27 News at 10, we'll take you to the watch party in Ryan's hometown.
