In this photo taken Aug. 12, 2012, librarians Jennifer Spangler, left, and Carolyn Messer, look at photos of Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. in his 1988 high school year book at the Janesville Library in Janesville, Wis. A defining moment for Paul Ryan's hometown came at the height of the Great Recession: General Motors, after nearly a century of making Chevrolets on the banks of the Rock River, shut down its oldest assembly plant and erased 6,000 jobs. A defining question for the campaign Paul Ryan joined this week as the Republican Party's vice presidential nominee just might be what comes next for places like Janesville. (AP Photo/Andy Manis)
