Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has named Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate for the 2012 campaign.

At the age of 42, Ryan is a seven-term Congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as being a chairman of the House Budget Committee.

Ryan was born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin.

As Romney introduced Ryan, he stated “We offer our commitment to create 12 million new jobs and bring better take home pay to middle class families.”

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty had much to say about the new VP of the campaign,  “Congressman Ryan is a respected leader and a bold thinker regarding the changes needed to restore America. His selection will also help Governor Romney win the key swing state of Wisconsin.  I am excited about a Romney-Ryan ticket and look forward to doing all I can to help them win this election.”

The duo’s main focus is to cut money from federal spending & bring back a better Medicare system.
