Ryan going for the luck of the 'Pack'

Waukesha, Wisconsin (CNN) – Rep. Paul Ryan is hoping the winning streak of his beloved Packers will rub off on his party and end a 28-year losing streak for Republican presidential nominees in his home state.

"And in Wisconsin we have shown that if leaders step up and lead we as voters have their backs. We haven't dedicated our electoral votes since 1984 to the Republican nominee. It is time we change that," Mitt Romney's running mate said. "We are on a winning streak here in Wisconsin. Let's keep that winning streak going."
