Presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan told reporters about his first thoughts when asked by Mitt Romney to be his running mate, saying he was fairly sure it was going to happen before it did.
“That it’s gone from the surreal to the real,” he told reporters aboard the campaign plane. “By the time we met in person I kind of knew it was gonna happen and I was very humbled. It was biggest honor I’ve ever been given in my life. And I love this country dearly, and I feel we have an opportunity to fix things once and for all. I feel really strongly about that. I’m excited about this. I spent most of my adult life fighting for these ideas and I’m excited to have the opportunity to help him do that. I know we can fix the problems we have in this country and I’m excited about getting out to do it.”
