Ryan to Republicans: Time to unify

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan is telling delegates at the state Republican convention that the party must unify.

Ryan spoke as delegates prepared to debate a tea party resolution affirming Wisconsin's right to secede. GOP leaders want to defeat it. Ryan didn't mention the resolution but called on the party to unify so it can win elections.

He complained about Lois Lerner, a former Internal Revenue Service official who has refused to answer questions about agents singling out tea party tax-exempt applications for scrutiny. He also promised answers about the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead in 2012. House Speaker John Boehner said Friday he would create a committee to investigate the attack.

Ryan was the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee and is considered a possible presidential contender in 2016.
