Rubio praises Romney’s ‘truly inspired’ pick of Ryan as running mateby George Bennett | August 11th, 2012
Sen. Marco Rubio, the top choice of many conservatives and Floridians to be Mitt Romney‘s running mate, says Romney’s choice of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan is “inspired.”
Here’s a statement released by Rubio moments after Romney and Ryan made their first joint appearance:
“Throughout his life, Mitt Romney has made great decisions, and choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate is a truly inspired choice. I got to know Paul during my Senate campaign when he endorsed me early on when I was still considered a long shot. Paul Ryan is a courageous reformer who understands our nation’s challenges, has proposed bold policy solutions to solve them, and has shown the courage to stand up to President Obama and other Washington politicians trying to tear him down.
“The Romney-Ryan ticket is going to win in November because it offers the American people visionary leadership to recapture the free enterprise spirit that has empowered countless Americans to build businesses from scratch and live the American dream. I’m excited about the visionary change a Romney-Ryan team will bring to Washington, and I look forward to campaigning with them this fall.”
