CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan will have a lot of work to do in Iowa, should he seek the 2016 presidential nomination, based on the range of sour reactions to his just-passed House budget proposal. The Wisconsin representative and former vice presidential nominee will make a pitch for the plan Friday at an annual spring fundraising event for the Republican Party in Iowa. Hundreds of party faithful are expected at the Lincoln Day dinner in Cedar Rapids, which often draws figures considering a run in Iowa's leadoff nominating caucuses.
