More down-ticket thoughts

You've probably seen this:
 Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate, will begin airing ads defending his House seat in Wisconsin, the Associated Press reports. The ads will begin airing Wednesday.
For the record, there's nothing wrong with (or even unusual about) trying to hang on to a seat while on a national ticket, nor would I read this to mean that Ryan is running for the exit in response to a drop in the polls as one blogger put it.

I do, however, wonder if this might be one of the down-ticket effects that I speculated about earlier. When the Romney campaign pulled out of Wisconsin, did Ryan feel the need to move back in, even though he knew the move wouldn't look good?
