FILE - In this May 22, 2012 file photo, House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., speaks at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. There are plenty of reasons for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to choose Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as a running mate. The whip-smart congressman is from a battleground state. He?s the GOP?s leading voice on the nation?s budget and is the rare member of the Republican establishment who?s loved by the tea party. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
