No more rumors: The Romney campaign told supporters today via phone app that Paul Ryan will indeed be Mitt Romney's running mate, reports AP. Romney will announce it himself at 9 Eastern in Norfolk, Va., and later the two will take off on a four-day bus tour. Earlier, just about every major news outlet was reporting that the 42-year-old Wisconsin congressman was the one, including the Washington Post, Politico, the New York Times, Huffington Post, NBC, ABC, etc. Ryan is chair of the House Budget panel and has strong conservative cred, as evidenced by the Wall Street Journal's push for him earlier this week.
