Statement from David H. Koch
August 21, 2012
“I’d like to set the record straight regarding false rumors alleging involvement by me and my wife with Governor Romney’s selection of Representative Paul Ryan as his running mate.
I have great respect for Congressman Ryan. He is a bright, capable leader and a tremendous asset to Governor Romney’s ticket. I presume Paul Ryan was chosen as the Governor’s running mate based on his qualifications and track record for thoughtful reform. The topic of who Governor Romney should choose as a running mate never came up, and the assertion that we had anything to do with his selection is wholly inaccurate and completely baseless.”
