-- Republican vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, was in President Obama's home town on Sunday, trying to raise campaign funds.

After Ryan and his family stepped off their private jet at O'Hare airport, the group was then whisked away to the nearby Hyatt Hotel in Rosemont, for an event.

Ryan told supporters their contributions will help Republicans define the "clear choice" for voters before the election.

When he arrived at the Hyatt, Ryan was greeted by congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, and a Big Bird look-a-like.

The small group, led by Schakowsky, protested Mitt Romney's comment during the presidential debate about cutting off funding to PBS. That of course includes Sesame Street.

The congresswoman says the Romney-Ryan ticket needs to worry about big oil companies' spending and not TV programming for kids.
