Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Brad Courtney’s Statement on Vice Presidential Announcement
[Madison, Wis] – Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Brad Courtney released the following statement regarding Governor Romney naming Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate:
“Wisconsin has reason to be proud today. With the sweeping success of Governor Scott Walker’s triumphant win in the June election and Congressman Ryan being announced as Governor Mitt Romney’s running mate, the Badger State is once again the focal point of political discussion throughout our nation.
As Wisconsinites, we are blessed to have our native son, Congressman Paul Ryan at the top of the ticket for the November election.
His bold vision for the future of our country and mastery of fiscal policy is just the shot in the arm that we need to continue the victorious right-turn for Wisconsin and bring jobs and economic growth back to our nation.
Today, as we begin the journey toward victory on November 6th, our legion of grassroots activists are more engaged than ever to help deliver Wisconsin to the Romney/Ryan ticket, and will work tirelessly for the next 86 days to ensure that Wisconsin turns red for the presidency for the first time since 1984.
Congressman Ryan is the right choice for the party and a perfect pairing for Governor Mitt Romney; he has passed the threshold test while in congress to assume the responsibilities as our Commander-In-Chief on day one, should the need ever arise.”
