Statement by ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on Gov. Romney’s Vice Presidential Announcement

August 10, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today released the following statement:

“Today marks the real start of the general election as Mitt Romney hit a home run with his Vice Presidential selection. Congressman Paul Ryan is a very smart, young and a superb family man with serious policy solutions to turn around the disastrous fiscal and economic policies of the Obama Administration.

This bold choice is resonating throughout the conservative movement and will give Mitt Romney very important momentum heading into the Convention and ultimately to victory in November. Gov. Romney’s selection unifies conservatives, defines our message of bringing fiscal sanity back to our government, and brings a youthful enthusiasm to the ticket as we embark on an important debate of ideas which will define America for generations to come.

Governor Romney has selected a true partner to help bring our country back on a path to prosperity again. Congressman Paul Ryan has shown leadership and courage on balancing the budget in contrast to the Obama Administration’s policies of runaway debt and unemployment.

Cong. Paul Ryan, his wife and three young children personify the best of America’s future we all work so tirelessly to defend, protect and strengthen. Cong. Ryan has a lifetime ACU rating of 91.69, and the American Conservative Union and our followers simply love this choice!”
