NORFOLK, Va. — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has picked Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan to be his running mate.

A Republican with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Romney has chosen Ryan. The Republican spoke on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to disclose the decision.

Romney was expected to introduce Ryan during a rally Saturday morning in Norfolk, Va.
