Mitt Romney announced Paul Ryan as his Vice Presidential candidate in the run for the White House this year.
The move is a savvy one — Paul is popular with the tea party, Romney is more mainline Republican. It is sizing up to be quite the race and as always, quite the nasty one with Super PACs spending millions of dollars on misleading advertising.
There is one guaranteed winner this fall: media outlets like radio stations and TV networks. They’ll bring in a ton of revenue this year thanks to the election.
