Republicans hit the road

City A.M. Reporter
REPUBLICAN Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign took on a celebratory tone yesterday, as Romney and his new vice presidential running mate, Paul Ryan, basked in the support of cheering crowds in North Carolina.

Thousands of people lined a highway in High Point to greet Romney and Ryan, who stopped to shake hands and exchange high-fives with some of them.

“We can turn this around,” said Ryan, 42, speaking of the economy and budget.

“We can do this. We can get this country back on track,” he added.
