Emken for U.S. Senate Statement on Romney’s Choice for Vice President
(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Elizabeth Emken, Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in California, issued the following statement on Mitt Romney’s choice for Vice President:
“I applaud Mitt Romney for his bold choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate and the next Vice President of the United States. I have always been impressed by Ryan’s fiscal discipline and his vision for solving our most challenging problems.
“More importantly, Ryan’s nomination means we can now have an honest national discussion about entitlements. My son is profoundly disabled and he will need a lifetime of care. I share Paul Ryan’s desire to put those entitlements on a sensible and sustainable path so that my son and the millions of children just like him will have the benefits they need.”
