(CNN) - Rep. Paul Ryan has been the GOP vice presidential nominee since Saturday, but has already become a lightning rod on the campaign trail.
CNN Chief National Correspondent John King caught up with Ryan at the Iowa State Fair and asked the candidate about how Democrats are seizing on his controversial Medicare plan.
"We'll play all these issues later," Ryan said. "We'll play stump the running mate later. Our job is to strengthen and protect Medicare. That's what we do. President Obama, they're raiding and ultimately rationing Medicare. We'll deal with these issues later though."
