Washington, D.C. - CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), Penny Young Nance, has issued the following statement in light of Gov. Mitt Romney naming Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate:
"Paul Ryan is an energetic and solid social conservative. He has tirelessly supported the unborn and voted in favor of a federal marriage amendment. In addition, he showed great courage and willingness to make the hard decisions needed to clean our fiscal house by actually putting pen to paper and advancing a plan.
"Others were simply content to sit on the sidelines and make political points; Congressman Ryan was determined to be a grown up and work for a real solution. The nation's mothers demand that our leaders in Washington stop spending money that belongs to our children and grandchildren and live within the nation's means, much like we all do at the kitchen table every month."
Director and Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute, Janice Crouse, Ph.D, has issued the following statement:
"Paul Ryan is a two-fer for Mitt Romney. He is, of course, a solid fiscal conservative; he is also a strong social conservative. He is a pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-family candidate who votes the right way, says the right things, and lives out his faith authentically."
