News broke in the early hours of Sat. Aug. 11 of Ryan’s selection, as the campaign kept his selection secret for several days, and stealthily transported Rep. Ryan to Norfolk, VA for the official announcement.

The two candidates began a bus tour of four key battleground states — Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Ohio. The interview with Bob Schieffer was conducted at a furniture factory in High Point, NC for broadcast later in the day (Aug. 12).

The interview covered a range of topics including Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget, Roadmap for America’s Future,, which has its share of proponents as well as critics for how it overhauls federal government spending, and in particular, Medicare. Other topics covered included what responsibilities Rep. Ryan would have in a Romney administration.
