Romney names his running mate

REPUBLICAN White House hopeful Mitt Romney has chosen Congressman Paul Ryan, known for advocating deep cuts in federal spending, as his running mate.

The selection was first made public in a brief email message sent by the campaign to reporters saying that Ryan was Romney's pick for vice-president.

A statement shortly afterward said: "Mitt Romney today announced Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate."

It did not elaborate except to add brief biographical data about Ryan, the powerful chairman of the House budget committee and a native of the Midwestern state of Wisconsin.

Ryan's selection will be officially announced at 9am during a photo opportunity at the USS Wisconsin, a decommissioned World War II-era battleship that also saw service during the Gulf War in 1991.
