Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan keeping options open about 2016 run

MANCHESTER, NH (WTAQ) - House Budget chairman Paul Ryan of Janesville says he's keeping his options open about a possible run for the presidency in 2016.

But he won't start to survey the political landscape until Congress completes its business for this year.

For now, Ryan -- the 2012 vice-presidential nominee -- said he's focused on running the House Budget Committee, and he'll worry about the other things later.

Ryan made his comments in Manchester New Hampshire Tuesday night, where he spoke at a fundraiser for former House colleague Frank Guinta -- who's trying to win his job back after he lost in 2012.

Ryan also praised the Tea Party's influence on the GOP, and said interparty skirmishes were nothing more than "creative tension." He said the Republicans lost their footing before 2010 -- and Ryan said the Tea Party has, "done a great service to become a real fiscal conservative party."
