Romney Tabs Ryan as GOP Running Mate

NORFOLK, VA (AP)  Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney introduced Rep. Paul Ryan of
Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, turning to the
architect of a deeply conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget
plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending.

In the campaign to come, Republicans will present economic solutions “that are bold,
specific and achievable,” Romney said as he presented his political partner to
cheering supporters. “We offer our commitment to create 12 million new jobs and
bring better take home pay to middle class families.”

“I am deeply excited and honored to join you as your running mate,” Ryan said in his
first words at the podium.” He said that together, “we will restore the
greatness of this country.”
