U.S.Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Bowling Green, issued this statement Saturday on Republican presummptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as the Republican vice presidential candidate:
“I am excited that my colleague Paul Ryan is now part of America’s comeback team. As the Republican nominee for Vice-President, he will continue to champion his message of fiscal responsibility. Paul is a man of character and has what it takes to make a difference for our nation’s future.
“I am proud to support the Romney-Ryan ticket because these two great leaders will not duck the serious issues facing our country, but rather face them head on in our mission to restore fiscal sanity in Washington D.C.”
