ABC's Shushannah Walshe reports on Paul Ryan's effort to keep his congressional seat least his vice-presidential ambitions be snuffed.
Paul Ryan is spending millions on ads in Wisconsin, but it’s not to help get the GOP ticket to the White House, it’s to keep his congressional seat … of course, it can’t hurt.
The GOP vice presidential nominee is spending about $2 million on television, radio and print ads to keep his House seat, Paul Ryan’s congressional campaign manager Kevin Seifert confirms.
The ads will run in the Milwaukee and Madison media markets, and the campaign just released a new one Wednesday making the total number of television ads at eight, less than two weeks before Election Day.
They will release a ninth before voters go to the polls on Nov. 6, a congressional aide tells ABC News.
Here's Ryan's new TV ad.

Sure, it's standard for candidates to wear goggles in campaign ads, but to talk with them on for the entire 30 seconds? He looks like Safety Bono.
