Paul Ryan and Tommy Thompson visit Hudson

Paul Ryan had to stand on a chair for the hundreds of people outside the Hudson Victory Center to see him. An entourage of national press corp arrived with Ryan and blocked others from seeing him, which is why he stood on a chair.

An effort at Republican Victory Centers throughout Wisconsin to collect food, dog food and other essential supplies for victims of Hurricane Sandy took place in Hudson Tuesday.

Hundreds of people arrived bringing their donations and the hope to see vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan.

The donations will be going to an organization called Nourish America. They will shipped to Pennsylvannia for distribution to areas of the East Coast hardest hit. Ryan also called for donations to be made to the Red Cross. The Red Cross only accepts money -- no soft goods.

While waiting for Ryan to arrive, State Rep. Dean Knudson, State Sen. Sheila Harsdorf and State Rep. John Murtha addressed the crowd, which gathered inside and out.
