Paul Ryan also campaigned in Iowa on Monday in his solo campaign debut as Mitt Romney’s running mate. Speaking at the Iowa State Fair, Ryan was heckled by demonstrators who told him "stop the war on the middle class."

Paul Ryan: "I think it’s become — so, you know what? It’s funny. It’s funny because Iowans and Wisconsinites, we like to be respectful of one another and peaceful with one another and listen to each other. These ladies must not be from Iowa or Wisconsin."

Ryan was speaking on the same stage where Mitt Romney infamously told a group of hecklers that "corporations are people" one year ago.
