Lisa Stickan, the Chairman of the Young Republican National Federation released the following statement:
This morning, Mitt Romney selected Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan to be his running mate and Vice Presidential nominee of our party. Rep. Ryan is a proven reformer and leader who has courageously offered concrete proposals to turn our economy around. He is also a young leader, only 42 years old, who understands the generational challenges being faced by our country and has made choices to ensure that our generation and our children's generation have a future that is not buried in debt. This is in stark contrast to President Obama's record of failure, piling on more debt and more job and business killing regulations that ignore the challenges of our generation while undermining our own hope on our future. Governor Romney's selection of Paul Ryan shows vision and a seriousness about our future that the American people will recognize this fall.
