CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan has a lot of work to do in Iowa to sell his just-passed budget plan, should the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee seek the 2016 presidential nomination.

The Wisconsin representative and chairman of the House Budget Committee plans to make a pitch tonight at the annual spring fundraising dinner for the Iowa Republican Party in Cedar Rapids.

His measure passed Thursday by the House promises a balanced federal ledger by 2024 through sweeping cuts to social spending.

Many GOP officials in the leadoff caucus state, including Gov. Terry Branstad, praise Ryan's effort but say it's far from perfect.

And some have opposed the plan outright for its 10-year timeframe.

The annual Lincoln Day dinner often draws headliners who are considering a run for president.
