Rep. Paul Ryan explained his stance on abortion Wednesday for the first time since Rep. Todd Akin’s controversial comments about “legitimate rape.”
Missouri Republican Rep. and Senate nominee Todd Akin said in an interview Sunday that in the case of what he called “legitimate rape,” the “female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
President Barack Obama’s campaign moved to put Paul Ryan’s record at the heart of the election on Monday, painting Mitt Romney’s running mate as a “certifiable right-wing ideologue” who would abandon America’s most vulnerable.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan sat down with “Face the Nation” anchor Bob Schieffer in High Point, N.C., on Sunday for their first TV interview since Romney announced Ryan as his running mate.
Mitt Romney will announce his choice of running mate in Virginia today, with numerous sources indicating he will pick Congressman Paul Ryan to join him on his campaign for the White House.
