Governor Mitt Romney this morning announced his choice of Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his Vice Presidential running mate. It is a great pick.
There is no other public official on the planet who can better articulate conservative economic principles to the electorate – and aggressively advocate those principles to address our nation’s fiscal crisis head on - than Paul Ryan. He is a man of strong character and deep intellect. He is unapologetic in his defense of individual liberty and free enterprise. And he knows that America is an exceptional nation.
Most important, Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan shows that his priority is leading and governing the nation.
