Iowa voters are used to questioning presidential candidates up close during their caucus process and on Paul Ryan’s bus trip in eastern Iowa on Tuesday it was no different. At a town hall in Clinton, Ryan was asked for more specifics from a voter. Friday, that voter wrote an op-ed in the Quad City Times objecting to how she feels her question was portrayed by the Obama campaign and the media.
“I am the woman in the Green Bay Packer jacket at Rep. Paul Ryan’s rally in Clinton who asked him the question about specific plans to fix our economy,” Linda Morrison wrote. “Needless to say, I was quite shocked to learn the Obama campaign seized my question, putting out the statement ‘Even Ryan can’t attend his own rally without being called out.’ I was not calling Ryan out. I had the opportunity to ask a direct question to Paul Ryan and what I got was a complete direct answer with no spin.”
