JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan took his three children trick-or-treating in their Wisconsin hometown of Janesville on Halloween.

Ryan and his wife, Janna, took the threesome around their neighborhood Wednesday evening. Ryan says he used to go trick-or-treating on the same streets.

Ten-year-old daughter Liza dressed as pop star Katy Perry, an Obama supporter. Ryan's sons, 7-year-old Sam and 9-year-old Charlie, dressed as "spooky goblins."

Ryan spent the day campaigning in Wisconsin. When a reporter asked him about polls as he was preparing for the trick-or-treating, Ryan said he wasn't taking questions about the race while spending time with his family.

Ryan wore a red University of Wisconsin jacket and hat. Mrs. Ryan wore a witch's hat and veil.
