Mitt Romney has picked Paul Ryan, the 42-year-old Wisconsin congressman, as his running mate and the Republican vice presidential candidate.
The news was announced in an overnight message from Romney’s camp to the media, with the official introduction expected to happen at an event in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday morning.
Ryan’s selection ends months of speculation about who will join Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, in the campaign against President Obama and Joe Biden.
The seven-term U.S. Representative currently serves as the chair of the House Budget Committee and has famously advocated for a spending plan at odds with Obama’s.
Ryan married Janna Little in 2000.
The couple has three children.
