Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan told reporters that he’s “nervous” about his imminent debate with Vice President Joe Biden.

“This is my first time so sure, it’s a nervous situation because Joe Biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics,” Ryan told reporters yesterday.

Ryan thinks the president is an equalizer, though. “[W]hat he can’t run from is President Obama’s indefensible record,” he said of Biden.

Abortion activists are pressuring debate moderator Martha Raddatz to make abortion and contraception a focal point of the debate.
