(CNSNews.com) – Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday referred to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the running mate of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, as “Governor Ryan.”

During a campaign stop at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Va., Biden said, “Congressman Ryan and the congressional Republicans, as one person said, had all, have already passed in the Republican House what Governor Ryan is promising to give the whole nation.

“So in a sense folks it’s almost like running against another incumbent, like two incumbents running. By that I mean, we know for certain, we know for certain what the Republican Congress has been proposing the last four years – last two years has been Republican,” Biden said.
