Wauwatosa, Wisc.
Wisconsin governor Scott Walker said this afternoon that he'd like to see Mitt Romney choose fellow Wisconsinite Paul Ryan as a vice presidential nominee.


"I grew up fifteen miles down the road from Paul Ryan. He's a great friend of mine," Walker said in an interview with THE WEEKLY STANDARD. "Despite the obvious bias on my part, I don't think there's anybody who could be a better pick--not just electorally but substantively--I don't think there' s a better pick than Paul Ryan out there."

And what if Romney comes to Walker, after Walker successfully fends off a recall challenge on June 5, and says he wants Walker as VP?

"I'd say, 'If you need Wisconsin, Paul Ryan would be a great pick.'"
