NORFOLK, Va. – Mitt Romney unveiled on Saturday morning Representative Paul Ryan as his choice for running mate, a bold move that comes at the end of an intense selection process and is likely to shake up a presidential race out of the summer doldrums.
Emerging from a hulking Navy warship festooned in red, white and blue bunting, Romney lavished praise on the Wisconsin Republican. “He doesn’t demonize his opponents. He understands honorable people can have honest differences,” Romney said. “He’s never been content to simply curse the darkness. He’d rather light candles.”
Romney wore a tie, no jacket, while Ryan was in jacket, no tie – making the pair, at least symbolically, a full suit. They raised arms together, smiled widely, with family members in the crowd.
