ATLANTA (WAOK)-Georgia Republicans are congratulating Governor Mitt Romney on his choice of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate.
U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.:
“I congratulate Gov. Romney for making a thoughtful and serious choice by selecting Paul Ryan to be his running mate. I served with Paul Ryan in the House and have a tremendous amount of respect for him. Paul Ryan is a serious candidate who has clearly demonstrated that he has the discipline to help Gov. Romney tackle our country’s very serious fiscal issues. He understands that America cannot afford to continue to go down a path of record debt and deficits, and he has real solutions to get our nation back on a path of prosperity.”
U.S. Rep. Tom Graves:
“Governor Romney made a big choice in selecting Congressman Paul Ryan to join him on America’s comeback team. Congressman Ryan is a taxpayer champion and understands empowering the private sector is the best way to strengthen the economy and create jobs. Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan believe in the hard work and determination of the American people, not bigger government. A Romney-Ryan Administration will lead America away from the current trajectory of spiraling deficits and wasteful Washington spending and back on a path to economic vitality and greatness. I am excited about campaigning for the Romney-Ryan ticket and the opportunity and prosperity they will bring to each and every American.”
U.S. Representative Tom Graves is serving in his second term in Congress after first being elected to Congress in a special election in June 2010. Rep. Graves currently represents Georgia’s 9th District in Congress, but after congressional redistricting takes effect, he will represent Georgia’s 14th District.
