"Governor Mitt Romney's selection this morning of Chairman Paul Ryan adds the final piece to America's comeback -- the team America has been waiting for to reform our government and help get people back to work. Americans will soon know, like I know, that the Romney/Ryan ticket has the expertise needed to save our country from an entitlement mentality that has caused unprecedented spending and the overregulation of businesses that has taken our country to the brink of financial ruin.
I am excited about this team and I stand ready to help in any way I can to take back the White House and restore American preeminence in the world."
