Congressman Steve Pearce released the following statement on Governor Romney's selection of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate:
"The choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate shows Governor Romney's commitment to the big reforms necessary to fix our economy. Paul Ryan has been a consistent conservative voice in the US House of Representatives. Unlike President Obama and Washington Democrats, Congressman Ryan has put forward bold, concrete ideas to balance our nation's budget and get our economy working again.
"As New Mexican families continue to struggle in this Obama economy, I know they want to hear about solutions and not personal attacks. The Romney/Ryan ticket will put forward the ideas that will fix our economy and put America back on the path to prosperity that will help middle class New Mexicans. I look forward to working tirelessly to ensure we send Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan to the White House."
