Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., returned to Iowa for the first time Saturday night since the 2012 presidential campaign to test the presidential waters for 2016, according to the Washington Post.
Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate, who has mainly kept a low profile lately in Washington, addressed a fundraiser and “Birthday Bash” in honor of Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, USA Today reported.
Iowa helped set candidate Sen. Barack Obama on the road to the White House and also gave him its seven electoral votes against Romney.
In an 18-minute speech that the Washington Post described as part policy discussion and part political autopsy, Ryan said: “The next time you have a famous politician coming through Iowa, breezing through the towns, talking about big government, let’s be a little more skeptical.
“As I look back at the campaign, the problem Mitt and I had was that we were arguing against big government in theory. Here’s the difference now: We’ve got big government in practice.”
