Romney Campaign Makes it Official: It’s Paul Ryan
The Romney campaign announced the Ryan pick to supporters beginning at about 7 a.m. Saturday via an iPhone app.
Romney and Ryan will appear together later in the morning at a naval museum in Norfolk, Va.
Multiple news outlets began reporting that Ryan was Romney’s choice shortly after midnight Saturday, but the app announcement was the campaign’s first official word.
The website romneyryan.com went live early Saturday morning, as did the new Twitter handle @PaulRyanVP.
At 7:43 a.m., a tweet on Romney’s official Twitter account stated: “I am proud to announce @PaulRyanVP as my VP. Stand with us today. http://mi.tt/Romney-Ryan
