Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has picked Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate and will announce the pick on Saturday, a Republican official said.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Romney would announce Ryan as his choice at an event in Norfolk at about 9 A.M. local time, ending a months-long search for a running mate to face President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the Nov. 6 election.

The Romney campaign would not say who Romney has chosen, but he has been working from a short list of candidates that included Ryan, 42, a Wisconsin lawmaker who chairs the House of Representatives Budget Committee, Ohio Senator Rob Portman and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

The running mate would be able to join Romney on at least the start of a four-state bus tour that starts on Saturday at the docked ship USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, goes through North Carolina and Florida and ends on Tuesday in Ohio.
