WICHITA, KS — Today, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced Congressman Paul Ryan as his Vice-Presidential running mate.
Congressman Mike Pompeo offered the following statement in support:
“There is no doubt that the most significant obstacle facing America is out-of-control spending and a debt that jeopardizes our economic future. Mitt Romney has proven he understands this by selecting the foremost authority on solving our budget problems in Paul Ryan. I have had the honor to serve with Congressman Ryan and know him to be a man with incredible character, superior intellect and a tireless work ethic.
“Paul came to Wichita to help me when I was just beginning my campaign. I am eager to get out and return the favor as the time is now to restore our nation to its founding principles and the Romney/Ryan ticket is just the team to do it. I believe Paul Ryan will make an excellent Vice-President and would be ready to be President, should that become necessary. Paul Ryan will be great for America and great for Kansans.
“America has a clear choice to make: a Romney/Ryan ticket that believes in the power of the individual and limited government, or an Obama/Biden ticket that believes in empowering government and limiting the rights of individuals.”
