Team Romney is feeling great about the roll out of Mitt Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan. Campaign Manager Matt Rhoades sends out the following statement:
Tomorrow marks a week since Mitt Romney announced his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan to join him on America’s Comeback Team, and it’s clear that his choice has reshaped the race in a positive way. The Obama team’s increasing vitriol is a sure sign that they’re rattled by the pick. Unable to engage in an elevated policy debate, they’ve spent the past few days drowning in their own venom.
Rhoades also released numbers from the campaign, showing that Ryan was boosting enthusiasm for the ticket.
