Multiple sources confirm that Mitt Romney has picked Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan to join his presidential ticket. We’ll have more on this story as it develops.
Romney is set to formally make this announcement at 9 Eastern on August, 11th, in Virginia.
Personally, I’m thrilled with this pick. Ryan adds a level of competence to the the ticket that Obama/Biden cannot match. People will look at the two together an think, “these guys are legit.”
What do y’all think? Are you ready to work your butt off for a Romney/Ryan presidency?
The news comes from Drudge:
Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, ‘Meet The VP’ — just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal.
And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!
The timing of the announcement is now set for ‘coming weeks’.
It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney’s Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips.
Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.
