New York GOP Chairman Ed Cox released the following statement today, following the announcement of Paul Ryan as Governor Mitt Romney’s VP candidate:
“Congratulations to Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan on being chosen as Mitt Romney’s running mate.
“As a seven term Congressman, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, and a member of the House Ways & Means Committee, Paul Ryan is a proven and effective leader making him well-qualified to be Vice President of the United States.
“Congressman Ryan’s legislative experience compliments Governor Romney’s business acumen and executive experience, creating a team uniquely qualified to lead us back from the brink of economic disaster brought about by three and a half years of failed economic policy under President Obama.
“Americans cannot afford four more years of out-of-control government spending, high taxes, and job killing regulations. Come November, America’s Comeback Team will once again put America on the path to Freedom and prosperity.”
