Further News: Janna Ryan
In an effort to curb the current administration’s painting of Mitt Romney as an elitist and just out of touch with the everyday American, the Romney campaign is working to capitalize on running mate Paul Ryan’s small town upbringing and family life.
Ryan’s wife, Janna Ryan, is perfect for the part, joining her husband onstage this weekend in a $70 dress purchased from Kohl’s.
Was it a happy accident, a staged fashion move by campaign officials, or a cue taken from Michelle Obama? Or was it political keenness on Janna’s part? The answer might surprise you.
Janna Ryan, a graduate of Wellesley College, worked as a lobbyist and tax attorney in Washington D.C. before returning to Wisconsin to fulfill the role of mother and housewife. But she didn’t leave her smarts in The Capitol.
A multi-faceted, multi-skilled millionaire, she possesses the political suave needed for a successful bid for second lady of the United States. Perhaps Ann Romney could learn a thing or two about the intricacies, fashion and otherwise, that go into being the ideal political wife.
