BURBANK -- California Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro today made the follwing statement on Mitt Romney's choice of Rep. Paul Ryan (WI) as his running mate:
"In choosing Paul Ryan, Gov. Romney is signaling he wants to change the course of government, not manage it. This is the start of an aggressive ideas campaign and an opportunity for Republicans to unite behind a dynamic presidential ticket.
"Paul Ryan has been a leader in the fight against President Obama's failed policies in Washington D.C. and I am excited to see him continue that fight as the Vice Presidential Nominee.
"For four years our nation has dealt with undelivered promises and irresponsible spending. Paul Ryan's expertise on fiscal issues and our nation's out-of-control debt are exactly what we need to help move our nation forward.
"Our robust core of staff and volunteers are geared up and ready to help put Romney and Ryan in the White House."
