Paul Ryan blames loss on high turnout for Democratic Party in 'urban' areas
Washington, Nov. 14 (ANI): Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan has acknowledged that 'losing never feels good' adding that they lost due to huge voters' turnout for Democratic in urban areas.
While Mitt Romney's loss in the presidential election likely means the end of his political career, Ryan is returning to Washington, after winning reelection to his Congressional seat.
The Wisconsin Congressman spoke to CBS Affiliate WISC in his first TV interview since the election.
"We were surprised at the outcome," Ryan said, speaking of the election results.
"We knew this was gonna be a close race. We thought we had a very good chance of winning it," he added.
According to the report, he said that while he feels "very fortunate to have had this experience," Ryan admitted that "losing never feels good."
Ryan chalked the loss up to Democratic turnout, as opposed to issues, saying the get-out-the-vote efforts "especially in urban areas, gave President Obama the big margin to win this race," the report said.
While Ryan displayed a more conciliatory tone than he struck on the campaign trail, calling for compromise and "negotiation to make sure that bad thinsg don't happen just in a month or two for the economy," he reiterated his opposition to Obama's call to raise taxes on families making more than $250,000 annually, the report added.
"If the goal here is to keep raising tax rates, then that puts our successful small businesses, which is where most of our jobs come from, out of business," Ryan said. (ANI)
