For Romney, it's Ryan for VP



Published: Sat, August 11, 2012 @ 7:19 a.m.

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

Romney made his announcement to supporters via a phone app.

"Mitt's Choice for VP is Paul Ryan," it said and implored backers to spread the word.

The ticket-mates arranged their first joint appearance later in the morning at a naval museum, first stop of a bus tour through four battleground states in as many days.

Romney and Ryan are kicking off a four-day bus tour that will take them to as many states.

At 42, Ryan is a generation younger than the 65-year-old Romney.
