Ryan: We Want A ‘Mandate From The People’

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan implored supporters in Springfield, Va. on Friday to help he and Mitt Romney secure the political capital necessary to implement their agenda.

“We want to earn your support,” Ryan said.  “We want to deserve victory, so that when we win this election, we have the authority, the mandate from the people to get America back on track, get people going to work and get the American dream turned back on for people.”
