Mitt Romney picks Rep. Paul Ryan as his 2012 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.”

The two men basked in the cheers of supporters in the ticket’s made-for-television debut. “I did not make a mistake with this guy,” Romney exulted.

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