Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney decided on a fiscal conservative member of the House of Representatives as his running mate in the 2012 election.
This morning, Romney announced he has chosen Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate for the November election Saturday morning.
He titled the announcement as “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: America’s Comeback Team.”
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan is in his seventh term in Congress representing Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.
The 42 year-old is also a chairman of the House Budget Committee. Last year, he proposed a counter budget titled “Roadmap for America’s Future," which he said would eliminate the federal deficit over a multi-year period.
Democrats and liberals derided the budget, however, saying it focused more on cuts to spending for social programs and less on tax cuts for the wealthy.
The Huffington Post reported that both liberals and conservatives will be “thrilled” with Romney’s choice.
