Ryan tapped as Romney’s running mate
Mitt Romney’s campaign formally announced this morning that Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan will be his running mate. Ryan, 42, has served in the House of Representatives since 1999 and has become the mind behind Republican budget proposals — including the “Roadmap to America’s Future” and the “Path to Prosperity” — in Congress.
In statement from introducing Ryan, the campaign called the ticket “America’s Comeback Team.” Ryan will be introduced along side Romney this morning in Norfolk, Virginia with the USS Wisconsin serving as the setting.
