Sixth District congressional candidate Andy Barr today issued the following statement regarding presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's choice of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his vice presidential running mate:
"By selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney has shown his commitment to finding real solutions to our nation's jobs and debt crises. Congressman Ryan is a man of principle, substance and big ideas. He is a creative thinker who has demonstrated both political courage and bipartisanship in tackling one of the great challenges of our time: how to keep America's commitment to our seniors while saving Medicare for future generations. I look forward to working with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to avert a national debt crisis, save Medicare from bankruptcy and restore prosperity, economic growth and jobs for the American people."
