Lews: Ryan appeals to the extreme right
Democrats in Texas have begun attacking the selection of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate. Harris County Democratic Party Chairman Lane Lewis says the choice of Ryan as Romney's running mate makes things clear for everyone going to the polls in November.
“You’ve got Obama-Biden fighting for the middle class. And you have the Romney-Ryan ticket fighting for the upper class. It becomes a real election of choice now for the voters,” Lewis told KTRH
One of the criticisms of the Romney-Ryan ticket has been that they would hurt the middle class. Lewis says Ryan’s record, and his ideas, back that up.
“If you produce a budget that cuts services to seniors and makes college more expensive for students, you have to admit that favors the rich.”
Lewis did admit that Ryan makes a lot of sense for the GOP.
“He’s very polished. He’s young, He’s energetic. I think it makes sense as to why he picked him. Plus he delivers the far right wing, Tea Party base.”
Ryan made a campaign stop yesterday in Iowa where protesters attempted to storm the stage during his speech. Ryan will be talking to voters in Colorado and Nevada today while Romney will be in Ohio.
