Last night, Paul Ryan traded the campaign trail for a trick-or-treat route, celebrating Halloween with his three children, wife, sister-in-law, niece and invited members of the press in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin. It was a routine affair with just one exception – his daughter’s costume. Ten-year-old Liza dressed as Katy Perry, who recently performed at an Obama campaign event.
Along with Beyonce and Jay-Z, Perry is among the few pop stars taking action for Obama’s re-election, with additional support from rock icons like Bruce Springsteen. She engaged youth voters with a performance at an Obama rally in Las Vegas on October 24, where she encouraged the barely-legal members of the massive crowd to vote for the first time. On October 7th, Perry performed at an Obama fundraiser in Los Angeles, and this Saturday (Nov. 3), she’ll appear with the president at a rally in Milwaukee. ”I sang for President @BarackObama last night because I believe in Equal Rights #ForAll #Vote,” she tweeted. Additionally, Perry recently broke bread with Michelle Obama.
At her Vegas performance for Obama, Perry donned a ballot dress made out of latex – a skintight ensemble that Ryan’s name didn’t even appear on, just Mitt Romney’s.
