WASHINGTON– U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today made the following statement in response to Gov. Romney’s announcement that he has chosen Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to be his running mate in the upcoming presidential election.
“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.
