Wisconsin conservatives mourn the death of Jack Kemp
Wisconsin conservatives are mourning the death of Jack Kemp, the former NFL quarterback who became a congressman and Bob Dole's 1996 running mate.
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, said Kemp recruited him to work at the Empower America think tank in 1993.
Ryan said Kemp brought "unparalleled passion and vigor to his life's work of expanding opportunity for all."
And Ryan said Kemp's "infectious optimism" left a lasting impression on him.
