(WASHINGTON) — Former President George W. Bush joined the chorus of Republican voices praising presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.
“This is a strong pick,” Bush said. “Governor Romney is serious about confronting the long-term challenges facing America, and Paul Ryan will help him solve the difficult issues that must be addressed for future generations.”
