Wisconsin continues to stay in the national spotlight.

This time, in a bit of a surprise U.S. Congressman Paul Ryan has been named Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential choice.

This is just amazing to me.  In a state that ranks 18th in population, Wisconsin Republicans seem to be first in political influence.

It began two years ago an unknown Oshkosh Businessman, Ron Johnson knocked off incumbent U.S Senator Russ Feingold. It was a major upset and changed the types of people that routinely run for office.

Scott Walker was elected Governor... twice. A Wisconsinite heads the National Republican Party. And now Congressman Paul Ryan has been named Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential Candidate.

What makes it all the more remarkable is the fact that a Republican Presidential Candidate has not won Wisconsin since 1984.  That's almost 30 years.
