Local Delegates Say Ryan Provides Republicans With Balanced Ticket

If there was ever any question whether Congressman Paul Ryan is beloved by the Republican base, doubts were put to rest last evening. 

But Ryan brings some baggage to the ticket. He offered a controversial budget that would turn Medicare into a voucher program.

The Romney Camp has already said that while the former governor supports Ryan's budget he would offer a different one. 

Northern California Delegate Helen Wang considers herself a moderate and says it's a good thing the Romney ticket represents different ideas. 

WANG: "Everybody wants different things. So I'm the moderate and I think the two can balance it out for each other. You need to have the balancing so I think the two can balance it out."

That's what a lot of California delegates believe. Maxine Bennett is on Medicare. She says its good that Republicans, and especially Ryan, have started the dialogue. 

BENNETT: "I think that's a good thing. I think at least you bring ideas to the table, and then you hammer out some details. That's the way government should work. We should have good honest debate and have decisions to make based on everyone's input."
The Obama Campaign is trying to use Ryan's budget to attract support from seniors - a group that could decide this year's contest.
