achel Maddow confronted Wisconsin governor Scott Walker over disputed claims made by Paul Ryan in his speech at the Republican national convention on Wednesday night.
The vice-presidential candidate gave the major speech of the night, and referenced a General Motors plant that he said closed down under President Obama. He has made the claim before, and the plant actually closed down in December 2008 under President Bush.
Maddow asked Walker to address the claim after Ryan's speech. The governor said that there were two rounds of layoffs at the plant, and said that the bailout had not helped the auto industry in Wisconsin.
