DENVER (CBS4)- Colorado’s Republican leaders are reacting to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s choice for a running mate.

Romney named Rep. Paul Ryan to join the Republican ticket in his bid for the White House.

Ryan, 42, is chairman of the House Budget Committee and primary author of conservative tax-and-spending blueprints that the tea party-infused Republican majority approved despite Democratic opposition in 2011 and again in 2012.

Republican Party Chairman Ryan Call said, “Congressman Ryan is a bold and inspirational choice for Vice President. He is an intellectual leader of the Republican Party with the right experience and vision to reverse the failed economic policies of President Obama. “As Chairman of the House Budget Committee and sitting member of the House Ways and Means Committee, he is intimately aware of the fiscal realities that confront America and is well-equipped to help Governor Romney put Americans back to work, both here in Colorado and across the nation.”
