SANTA FE — Mitt Romney’s selection of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, as his vice-presidential pick generated enthusiastic support from most New Mexico Republicans on Saturday, but the reaction of GOP Senate candidate Heather Wilson was a bit muted.
Wilson sent this statement to Capitol Report New Mexico:
”Paul Ryan and I served together and I have always found him to be decent, honest and smart. I admire his willingness to put forth bold ideas on the biggest issues facing our nation, even if I don’t always agree with him. I look forward to seeing Gov. Romney’s plan to address these very important issues.”
The line about “don’t always agree with him” probably refers to Wilson’s vote in 2007 against a budget resolution in the House of Representatives sponsored by Ryan and her statement to Associated Press last month, “I have some concerns about Congressman Ryan‘s approach,” concerning Ryan’s call to reform Medicare.
