C-SPAN just cut to a shot of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker with tears streaming down his cheeks as Paul Ryan speaks.
Earlier in the day, Walker shared a little of his last conversation with Ryan with the New York Times.
“I just told him that today I just felt an overwhelming sense – since I pray for him every day – that God had really called him not just to do well tonight, but to be a servant for a time such as this,” Walker said. “I think he’s got an incredible responsibility. Knowing Paul, I think he’s up for it.”
