Paul Ryan R-Wis., left, campaign in Mooresville, N.C. For the first time in decades, the Republican presidential ticket has little substantial foreign policy or military experience, a marked shift for a party that has long sought to project strength on those issues. That may not hurt Romney, a successful businessman, and Ryan, a congressional budget expert, in a tightly contested election dominated by sluggish economic growth and high unemployment.
