Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says that he loves Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his running mate almost as much as he loves his wife of 43 years.

"I want to tell you how much I appreciate being in the home of the next vice president of the United States," Romney told a group of supporters in West Allis, Wisconsin on Friday. "You know, next to Ann Romney, Paul Ryan is the best choice I've ever made."

"This is not just about Paul and me, this is about America," he added. "We thank you and we ask you to stay at it all the way to the finish line because we're going to win on Tuesday night."
