U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL) today issued the following statement on Governor Mitt Romney's selection of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate:
"I'm excited about the selection of my friend Paul Ryan to be our next Vice President. Paul understands better than anyone else the fiscal challenges our country faces after four years of President Obama, and he's shown the courage to face those challenges head-on. He knows that to get our economy going and help Americans get back to work, we have to change course from the failed big-spending, big-government policies of the Obama Administration. Most importantly, I am confident that he would be ready to step in on day one and lead this country as Commander in Chief.
"Ryan is a great pick. Game on!"
