Mitt Romney and his newly minted running-mate Paul Ryan paid a visit to Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin and spoke to an energetic throng in the thousands.

The debate schedule has been announced, with three Presidential and one VP debate, all in the month of October. Jim Lehrer, Candy Crowley, Bob Schieffer, and Martha Raddatz will be the moderators.

And finally, Sarah Palin, Paul Ryan’s predecessor as the GOP VP nominee, will not have a speaking role at the Republican Convention. That will almost certainly decrease the number of times “you betcha” will be heard in Tampa.
