On Wednesday, Mitt Romney's running mate held three rallies in his home state before he and wife, Janna, returned to Janesville to spend Halloween with their three children.

Back on the stump, Ryan focuses on 'different direction'

Eau Claire, Wisconsin (CNN) - In the wake of Superstorm Sandy devastating the northeast Paul Ryan toned down his criticism of President Barack Obama when Mitt Romney's running mate resumed campaigning on Wednesday.

When the Wisconsin lawmaker and vice presidential nominee kicked off the first of three rallies in his home state he focused less on their Democratic opponent – who will spend the day surveying Sandy-ravaged areas of New Jersey with Republican Gov. Chris Christie – and more on what the Republican ticket would do if they were elected in six days.

Ryan hits Obama on auto bailout

Sabina, Ohio (CNN) – Vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan lent support to running mate Mitt Romney in Ohio on Saturday by going after President Barack Obama for "picking winners and losers" in the federal auto bailout.

The Republican presidential ticket has struggled to overcome the Democratic president's lead in the crucial battleground state, in part because of Romney's opposition in 2008 to a federal bailout of the U.S. auto industry.

Ryan likens Obama plan to 'slick new brochure'

Bristol, Virginia (CNN) - Mitt Romney running mate Paul Ryan likened President Barack Obama's 19-page second-term plan to a brochure at a Virginia rally and called it a "slick repackaging of more of the same" at a Virginia rally.

"You know President Obama hasn't really given us a vision for a second term agenda," he said. "Just a couple of days ago he came up with a slick new brochure. You know, with less than two weeks left to say, 'Oh I do actually have an agenda.'"
