"You know in Utah, I would think you would have a pretty good chance," Ryan responded.
Utah supporters will see a different treatment than supporters in swing states. Ryan was scheduled to leave Utah and head to the swing-state of Colorado where he was to speak at a public rally at Colorado Springs, with another rally planned Friday in Sparks, Nev.
Ryan supports prayer in schools if states agree
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says he supports prayer in public schools if approved by states.
The Wisconsin congressman addressed the issue during a brief stop Wednesday inside a Republican volunteer center in Provo. A volunteer asked whether he supported giving states the right to allow “prayer or pledge” in schools. Ryan said he did.
He says it’s a constitutional issue for states and a moral responsibility of parents. And he says Utah voters would have “a pretty good chance” of allowing prayer in schools.
GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign has not immediately clarified whether he agrees with Ryan’s position.
