Armey: Draft Paul Ryan for President

By Hiram Reisner

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey says with former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels saying he won’t run for the presidency, maybe it is time to draft House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Politico reports.

“It’s certainly a big disappointment,” Armey said on CNN’s “State of the Union” about Daniels’ decision not to seek the White House.

“There were a lot of us who were talking to Mitch, trying to get him to take this race on,” said Armey, chairman of FreedomWorks and a leader in the national tea party movement.

“We have about two million activists across the country and, frankly, we are disappointed,” he said. “Now, obviously, we have to start looking, and I was just saying this morning, maybe it’s time to start drafting Paul Ryan.”
