National Federation of Republican Women
Acclaims Romney's Vice Presidential Selection
'Ryan is an Excellent Choice for the Women of America'
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Rae Lynne Chornenky,
president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW),
issued the following statement regarding Mitt Romney's selection of Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate.
"The women of America should applaud Mitt Romney for choosing Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan to be his vice presidential running mate. Ryan's razor-sharp intellect, his bold, decisive leadership on the federal budget and the economy, his willingness and courage to tackle our nation's most difficult problems, and his Reagan-like ability to communicate ideas and solutions with the American people make him the perfect vice presidential candidate for this watershed moment in our history.
"Women, who have been disproportionately devastated by President Obama's economic policies, should be particularly encouraged and excited about Ryan's presence on the Republican ticket. Survey after survey show that women are most concerned about the economy, unemployment, and the lack of job opportunities, and how the bleak economic climate is affecting their families. By selecting a proven leader like Ryan as his running mate, Romney has solidified his commitment to getting our nation's fiscal affairs in order and putting us back on the economic path to prosperity. All Americans will benefit from a Romney-Ryan administration."
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of
