On Saturday morning, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced that he had chosenas his running mate.
The choice ended weeks of speculation, lining up a running mate designed to fire up the Republican Party's more conservative elements.
Locally, U.S. Rep. Bob Turner, R-Forest Hills, said he was excited by the announcement.
"Paul Ryan has been a colleague and friend over the past year, and he will make an outstanding Vice President," Turner said. "He has been a leader in providing serious solutions to our country's problems, especially our debt crisis. We must prevent our country from falling over a fiscal cliff, and the Romney-Ryan team will give the nation a clear choice for the future."
It's no surprise that Turner was happy about the choice — we want to know what you think.
