NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney selected Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate.

The candidate made his announcement to supporters via a phone app, saying -- quote -- "Mitt's Choice for VP is Paul Ryan." The GOP ticket appeared together at 9 a.m. Eastern in Norfolk, Va.

Romney and Ryan are kicking off a four-day bus tour that will take them to many states.

At 42, Ryan is a generation younger than the 65-year-old Romney.
