Who is Paul Ryan?

Paul Ryan, a U.S. Representative representing the state of Wisconsin for the Republican party, was named as Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate on Aug. 11, 2012. If Romney wins the presidential election in November, Ryan will become Vice President of the United States.

At 42, Ryan was first elected to the House in 1998 and currently serves as chairman of the Budget Committee. He was born in Wisconsin and is the youngest of four children. Ryan attended Miami University of Ohio, majoring in economics and political science. After graduating in 1992, Ryan worked as a staff economist on Capitol Hill, officially launching his political career.

In December 2000, Ryan married Janna Little, a tax lawyer, and the couple has two boys and a girl. Ryan is Roman Catholic, and is said to have been very active all his life, competing since high school in track, ski, soccer and basketball.






Ryan's political focus has included tax and spending cuts, and reshaping the Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security programs. In announcing Ryan as his vice-presidential candidate, Romney said: "There are a lot of people in the other party who might disagree with Paul Ryan. I don't know of anyone who doesn't respect his character and judgment." To learn more about Ryan, see the resources below.
