Ryan Backs Romney

Not shocked by this news.

Saw Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post, who has connections with the Ryan staff out in DC, make a comment about it last night and it pretty much was confirmed by Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller.

One of the major factors is this week, the RNC announced the RNC’s Presidential Trust, which helps funds the party’s activities during the 2012 presidential race — which Ryan chaired and forced him out of endorsing anyone — is now fully funded.  With it fully funded, Ryan is free to endorse whom he pleases.

How this effects Tuesday’s primary is the real question since polling from a number of sources was showing Romney already leading outside the margin of error in multiple polls.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) endorsed Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney Friday, saying he believed the former Massachusetts governor was the best candidate to face off against President Obama in the fall and hold the nation’s highest office.

“I am convinced that Mitt Romney has the skills, the tenacity, the principles, the courage, and the integrity to do what it takes to get America back on track. So I believe he’s the right person for the job,” Ryan said on Fox News.

The popular Wisconsin lawmaker said his decision was partially prompted by voters in his home state asking him before the upcoming presidential primary who they should vote for.

“We vote here Tuesday in Wisconsin. Lots of my friends, family, supporters are asking me, you know, ‘Who do you think we should vote for?’ I have two criteria I am using to make my decision to vote in our primary Tuesday. Who is the best person to be president – who will be the best president? And who has the best chance of defeating Barack Obama? And in my mind, Mitt Romney is clearly that person,” Ryan said.

Romney has been using Ryan in the role of adviser for his campaign on budget policy for a number of months.  So this move should have been seen as coming for a while.
