WISCONSIN (WEAU)- Paul Ryans plan B was a success. Ryan has won the U.S. House 1st District seat in Wisconsin.

In addition to being Republican Mitt Romney’s running mate, the Wisconsin congressman ran for re-election to the U.S. House.

Ryan has held his 1st District seat in southeast Wisconsin since 1998.

State law allowed Ryan to run for VP and Congress at the same time.

It’s been an uphill climb for his challengers for the House, Democratic businessman Rob Zerban and Libertarian Keith Deschler. Zerban tried for weeks, unsuccessfully, to get Ryan to debate him.

If Ryan wins twice Tuesday....

He would have to resign from Congress and a special election would be held to fill the House seat.
