JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, cast his ballot Tuesday in the 2012 elections, saying he feels good about his ticket’s chances.

Asked whether he and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would win the election, Mr. Ryan said: “I think we are. I feel good about it.”

Mr. Ryan and his wife, Janna, voted Tuesday at a library here in their hometown. They smiled for reporters as they walked into the polling site, surrounded by journalists capturing the final day of a close and hard-fought presidential election.

Afterward, Mr. Ryan headed to Ohio and Virginia for a final round of politicking before he joins Mr. Romney in Boston to await the returns.


Mr. Ryan, 42, also is running for re-election to his House seat.
