It's a beautiful day at The Villages with Paul Ryan - huge enthusiastic crowd still building.— Brett Doster (@BrettDoster) August 18, 2012
Paul Ryan is in The Villages, Fla., today for his first Sunshine State visit since joining the GOP presidential ticket last weekend.
The area has more people receiving social security benefits than any other ZIP code in the U.S.
Ryan opponents are keepin’ it classy on Twitter:
But the crowd was full of enthusiasm as supporters awaited Ryan’s visit.
Romney’s VP pick was joined by his mom, Betty Douglas.
Highlights from his speech:
Ryan interrupted his speech to make sure a medic was on hand for a woman who fainted.
Some ab-related swooning perhaps?
Note that Ryan called for a paramedic, not a paralegal.
So, did Ryan win anyone over with his appearance at The Villages?
