Romney Picks Ryan For Running Mate

Norfolk, VA

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has selected Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate.  

The candidate made his announcement to supporters via a phone app, saying "Mitt's Choice for VP is Paul Ryan."

The GOP ticket is kicking off a four-day bus tour today that will take them to as many battleground states.  

At 42, Ryan is a generation younger than the 65-year-old Romney and the seven-term Wisconsin congressman is a favorite of some conservatives.

Ryan heads the House Budget Committee and is author of a House-passed budget that would slash federal spending and overhaul entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare.
