SHARE Paul Ryan acceptance speech brings Gov. Scott Walker to tears

As Paul Ryan thundered away in his acceptance speech Wednesday night at the Obama administration and the task ahead as he sees it for the Republican ticket and party, he had at least on fan in his hands – fellow GOP darling, and Wisconsinite, Gov. Scott Walker.

In the video above, Walker, who survived a furious recall election earlier this year, is seen with a tear streaming down his face as Ryan pushes the crowd to get the job done.

Crying in the crowd probably never happened at a Zeppelin show, though.
