LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan tells Wisconsin Republicans that the party needs to expand its appeal in order to win the presidency.

Ryan delivered the message Saturday at the state Republican Party convention in La Crosse.

Ryan was the vice presidential nominee in 2012 under Mitt Romney. He says one of the lessons he learned in that campaign was that “the electoral college matters.” He says in order to win, “we need to expand our appeal.”

Ryan says that will take showing all voters “from every nook and cranny” that Republicans have better ideas.

He says changes to the party’s primary process, including limiting the number of debates, will improve the nominee’s chances.

Gov. Scott Walker is a likely presidential candidate. He spoke earlier at the convention before heading to Iowa.
