Maybe now you all won't doubt the polls when they aren't going your way.

Matt Rhoades, on the overall race: "No campaign is perfect, and we certainly made our share of mistakes." On Paul Ryan: "He has come away from this race with a very bright future before him."

Rich Beeson, on the campaign's strategy: "We won independents and held the base....
