The Hill's Cameron Joseph reports on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's plug for his homestate buddy, Rep. Paul Ryan:
"I'm biased for Paul," Walker told The Hill at a Thursday breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor. "If you believe that the fiscal crisis facing our country is is clearly one of our top challenges, I don't know of anybody, at least in this town, who's better equipped to help you deal with that, not just because of his plan but because he understands the dynamics. I think he's got credible respect on both sides of the aisle. … Far beyond that, he's just from Wisconsin — I think there's tremendous value to Paul."
.... He mentioned Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) as other strong options to be vice president.
Walker said Wisconsin would be in play at the presidential level — but only if Romney could offer a positive agenda.
