Rubio raising money for 'visionary' Romney-Ryan ticket



Sen. Marco Rubio heads to Texas for Romney fundraisers on Wednesday, but he's already lending his star power to the campaign. In a fundraising appeal, Rubio calls VP pick Paul Ryan a "courageous reformer."


Throughout his life, Mitt Romney has made great decisions, and choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate is a truly inspired choice. I got to know Paul during my Senate campaign when he endorsed me early on when I was still considered a long shot.

Paul Ryan is a courageous reformer who understands our nation's challenges, has proposed bold policy solutions to solve them, and has shown the courage to stand up to President Obama and other Washington politicians trying to tear him down.

The Romney-Ryan ticket is going to win in November because it offers the American people visionary leadership to recapture the free enterprise spirit that has empowered countless Americans to build businesses from scratch and live the American dream.

I'm excited about the visionary change a Romney-Ryan team will bring to Washington, and I look forward to campaigning with them this fall.

Donate today and send a message to President Obama and his liberal allies that we can't afford four more years of reckless, runaway spending.

Thank you,

Marco Rubio
