U.S. Senator Marco Rubio applauded Mitt Romney’s selection of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential pick.
“Throughout his life, Mitt Romney has made great decisions, and choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate is a truly inspired choice,” Rubio said in a statement.
He mentioned receiving an endorsement from Ryan early on in his Senate campaign and called him a “courageous reformer who understands our nation’s challenges.” Rubio also commended Ryan for having “courage to stand up to President Obama and other Washington politicians trying to tear him down.
Rubio closed by expressing his confidence in a win for the Republican Party.
“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,” he said. “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.”
