It was a big question when Mitt Romney clinched the GOP nomination: Can he gain the full support of the Tea Party? With his announcement of Paul Ryan as his running mate today, Romney did just that. Tea Partiers are excited about a Romney/Ryan ticket and will surely mobilize their effective grassroots efforts to beat Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the fall.

From the Tea Party Patriots:

Tea Party Patriots welcomes the selection of Paul Ryan as the Vice-Presidential running mate for Governor Mitt Romney. With this selection, Governor Romney and the Republican Party make it clear that they have accepted the Tea Party Patriots values of fiscal responsibility, limited government and free markets as the best course of action for economic recovery and restoring personal freedom and individual responsibility to our national values.

Get ready for a "Tea Party extremists" comeback from the media and the left.
