MILWAUKEE - Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan earned a concession prize on Wednesday after he lost the national race as presidential candidate Mitt Romney's running-mate, easily reclaiming his congressional seat in Wisconsin.

While the Republican ticket of Romney and Ryan lost to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, Ryan defeated Democratic businessman Rob Zerban in Wisconsin.



The 42-year-old Ryan represents a Wisconsin district consisting of the southeast corner of the state, including Janesville, Racine and parts of southern Milwaukee County.

Ryan will return to Congress where he has spent the last 14 years. He is chairman of the House Budget Committee.
