Paul Ryan Works Out With Congressman Jim Gerlach

Paul Ryan—the Congressman from Wisconsin who has been named as the VP on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s ticket—is all buddy-buddy with Congressman Jim Gerlach, who serves Pennsylvania’s sixth congressional district. They’ve reportedly been close for years—both served on the House Ways and Means Committee, Gerlach supported Ryan’s controversial budget proposal, and Ryan threw Gerlach a fundraiser luncheon in Valley Forge. Oh, and they reportedly get their swell on together at the House gym. [Politics PA]
