Congressman Ryan brings to the national Republican ticket a long legislative record as an advocate for U.S. reaffirmation of the Armenian Genocide – co-sponsoring legislation to commemorate this crime, and co-signing a number of Congressional letters asking President Bush and Obama to honor their commitments to properly recognize this atrocity as a genocide, said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian commenting for the Armenian News-NEWS.am information on Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) running for vice president.
“Much like the current vice president, Joe Biden, Representative Ryan enters the presidential race with ‘A’ ratings from the ANCA,” noted Hamparian. “We look to the Romney-Ryan ticket to publicly share their views on issues of special concern to Armenian American voters, and also to the Obama-Biden White House to explain their policies on matters of particular interest to our community, so that Armenian American voters can make fully informed choices at the ballot box this November.”
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is running for vice president, after presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney announced him as his pick on Saturday morning.
