Ryan shocked at election loss, says it was fair

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan acknowledges that he was shocked when he and presidential nominee Mitt Romney lost last week's election. The Wisconsin congressman says President Barack Obama won fair and square.

Ryan says he and Romney thought they had a very good chance of winning Nov. 6. He cites polling, other data, and what he calls "the smart people who watch this stuff" for his optimistic view election night.

Ryan says Obama deserves kudos for what Ryan calls "a fantastic ground game." The congressman says Obama received more votes and should be congratulated for that.

Had he been at the top of the ticket, Ryan says, he would have run exactly the kind of campaign that Romney ran.
