After Democrat Kathy Hochul edged out a win in an New York special election in May 2011, former President Bill Clinton chatted with Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan off-stage.
“I’m glad we won this race in New York, but I hope the Democrats don’t use it as an excuse to do nothing,” Clinton said.
Ryan responded, saying he thought Congress would soon “sink into paralysis.”
The chat was friendly though: Ryan tossed out a “Yeah, I’ll give you a call” as he walked away.
