WASHINGTON, DC - Former Vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan sat down for his first live TV interview since the presidential election.
Congressman Ryan was on NBC's "Meet The Press" for an exclusive interview with David Gregory.
During the interview Ryan talked about a number of topics, but mainly the nation's economic status. Ryan did take time out to briefly discuss a potential presidential run in 2016.
Ryan said it was premature to talk about a presidential run.
Ryan said, "I've got an important job to do. I represent Wisconsin. I'm chairman of the budget committee at the time we have a fiscal crisis. I think I can do my job representing the people I work for by focusing on that right now, than focusing on distant things."
RHINELANDER - Dozens of Rhinelander students called in sick, forcing the district to shut down early last month. But teachers weren't immune either. It got so bad that there weren't enough substitute teachers on hand to fill in for the sick staff. The district is now recruiting more subs to be better prepared for another outbreak. Rhinelander schools went into the year with what they thought was a solid plan. But directors of instructions, Terri Maney says nature had other plans. "The pertussis did not only affect students, it affected staff," says Maney.
Students and teachers started getting sick in mid-December. Maney says they went into this school year with more substitute teachers than ever before. But they never planned for a pertussis outbreak. At one point, 1 in 5 students contacted the disease along with teachers calling in too.
