Judy Biggert, candidate for Congress in Illinois' 11th Congressional District, today released the following statement after Governor Mitt Romney named Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate.
"Paul Ryan is an exciting choice for Vice President. He's a smart, dynamic leader who has never been afraid to roll up his sleeves and dig in to the tough issues. He cares deeply about bringing fiscal sanity to Washington and growth back to our economy. And Americans are ready for strong leaders with the passion and expertise to turn our economy around and get people back to work. Paul Ryan has that, and he brings Midwestern common sense and simple clarity to the debate that will serve him well, especially when it comes to turning back the misleading attacks that he'll face on the trail. Voters like facts more than attacks, and he's a guy who can deliver."
