Per Reuters HERE:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has picked Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate and will announce the pick on Saturday, a Republican official said.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Romney would announce Ryan as his choice at an event in Norfolk.
Also – from a source in Wisconsin whom I’ve spoken with …. Romney was at Paul Ryan’s house meeting with him today. And multiple outlets are announcing same.
Romney has gone all in on the conservative agenda recognizing that conservatives are not happy with him personally and he needs someone to add energy and pizzazz to his campaign. If you don’t know who House Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI) is … let me tell you. He wrote the House Republican budget … he is everything that is wrong with the Republican party except he has an outside veneer of moderation.
The most important thing you need to know about Paul Ryan is that he cuts taxes for millionaires by 40% and finds ways to pay for it by cutting spending on programs that benefit the middle class and poor the most. That’s the Ryan plan summed up.
