Rep. Paul Ryan says McCain campaign is struggling

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A prominent Wisconsin congressman supporting Sen. John McCain is expressing displeasure with the campaign's operation.

  Rep. Paul Ryan of Janesville says if he were running, "I would have done things differently the last few weeks."

  Ryan says McCain's campaign has been knocked off stride as Democrat Barack Obama has drastically outspent it.

  Ryan says that has allowed the Democrats to better define the issues.

  Ryan says McCain's plans for health care and the economy should have been more vigorously defended against Obama's criticism.

  Ryan was mentioned earlier this year as a potential running mate for McCain and the Arizona senator has called Ryan one of the future leaders of the Republican Party.
