Rep. Moore goes after Paul Ryan at rally

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore is using her speaking slot at President Barack Obama's rally in Milwaukee to go after Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and his budget plan.

Moore spoke Saturday before pop star Katy Perry and Obama took the stage.

Moore serves on the House Budget Committee which Ryan chairs. Moore says serving on that committee has made her a "witness to the crime."

She says "we cannot allow these Republicans to take over the United States Senate."

Moore says Obama needs to elect Democrat Tammy Baldwin to the Senate. She is running against Republican Tommy Thompson.

Moore represents Milwaukee in Congress.
