Stratford - Today Christopher Shays, Republican candidate for United States Senate, released a statement applauding Governor Romney's pick of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate.
"Governor Romney could not have made a better choice for his running mate than his decision to name my friend and former colleague, Congressman Paul Ryan.
Paul will be a Vice President all America can be proud of.
Congressman Paul Ryan and I served together on the House Budget Committee for many years. Together we fought to cut wasteful government spending, to balance the federal budget, and help set the stage for years of economic growth.
Governor Romney said his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan is, 'another step forward to restore the promise of America', and I couldn’t agree more.
My sincerest congratulations to Paul Ryan, a man who has spent the past 14 years serving in Congress. He is an experienced leader, trying to restore fiscal sanity to Washington."
