Romney says US Rep. Paul Ryan to be his Republican running mate

NORFOLK, Virginia, Aug 11 (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Saturday said he has selected Congressman Paul Ryan, 42, as his vice presidential running mate.

Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, announced that he has tapped the House of Representatives Budget Committee chairman at an event in front of the retired battleship USS Wisconsin - coincidentally named for Ryan’s home state.
