Romney and Ryan Reunite in Chicago Thursday



    Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his vice presidential running mate, Paul Ryan, are reuniting publicly for the first time since their unsuccessful bid for the White House two years ago.

    Romney is interviewing Ryan on stage in Chicago Thursday night. The subject is Ryan's new book, "The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea."
    The Wisconsin congressman is weighing a presidential campaign of his own. His book includes an account of how, at 15, he found his alcoholic father dead in bed from an apparent heart attack.
    Ryan has said that event shaped him as a politician and family man, and figures heavily into whether he'll seek the presidency in 2016.
