The presumptive GOP presidential candidate officially announced Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential pick Saturday.
Among those cheering is Tom Zawistowksi, president of the Ohio Liberty Coalition. He says he and his fellow Tea Partiers were surprised at the boldness of the pick, but are pleased because Ryan has aggressively promoted fiscal responsibility and limiting the growth of government. Zawistoski says with Ryan on the ticket those issues are now front and center….even if the plan still needs work.
Democrats in Montgomery County chose Fred Strahorn to replace Rep. Clayton Luckie, who withdrew from running for re-election.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the county party's central committee voted 41 to 1 replace Luckie on the November ballot. Luckie dropped out Friday, a day after the Franklin County prosecutor said Luckie was under investigation. The prosecutor has said little other than that the probe doesn't involve bribery.
Luckie remains in office. He hasn't commented on his withdrawal or the prosecutor's statement.
Google is eliminating about 20 percent of the jobs at Motorola Mobility, the struggling cellphone manufacturer it finished acquiring earlier this year for $12.5 billion, according to reports from The New York Times, Dow Jones' All Things Digital blog and other news outlets.
With Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick now in the books (if you somehow escaped the news from the weekend, it's Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin), the presidential campaign shifts into a higher gear this week.
