August 11, 2012


OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement applauding Governor Mitt Romney for his selection of Congressman Paul Ryan as a running mate:

"Having worked with Paul Ryan in Congress, I know he is a smart, committed advocate for the kind of small government, pro-growth policies that are going to create more jobs and get this country back on track. He's also a genuinely nice person with a great family and a wonderful wife from Madill, Oklahoma. He will make a great running mate, and continue to be an effective voice for the principles of limited government and free markets that make America great. I applaud Mitt Romney for selecting Paul, and I look forward to doing everything I can to support the Romney/Ryan ticket."
