Transcript for Paul Ryan Avoided Reporters by Running Through Woods
And last night, we told you about the mission impossible, the aim to keep the v.P. Pick a secret. Even with the stake out in front of paul ryan's home. Turns out the running mate escaped through the woods. One of our own is staked out in front of paul ryan's janesville, wisconsin, home. It's what we do. He did appear mid afternoon friday, dropped off by an aide. Walking up his driveway. He said his wife wasn't home and he was locked out. He lost his keys. And as it turns out. As we later expected that moment was part of the plan. When ryan went around the back to get in, that was the last we would see of him. The aide was driving to the other side of the neighborhood and waiting for him. He would dash behind his house and went to a truck that was waiting for him. He talked about that. The house I grew up in backs up to the house I live in now. So I know the woods like the back of my hand. I just went out my back-door and I went over the gully and I went over the tree in the fort i built and went out next to the drive way I grew up in. In the woods, the house that he grew up in and the truck with his aide inside. He was driven to an airport and flown to elizabeth city, north carolina and driven to norfolk, virginia, to meet up with the romneys. All the while, the team outside his home, the lights on and off, the tv on upstairs. The ryans, long gone. We learn there was someone in the house after all. It was his sister-in-law. 86 days now until election day. Perhaps helping out with it all. We move on to the other headline overseas. A collision wean a u.S. Navy ship and an oil tanker.
