WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), selected as running mate and vice presidential pick by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, has a solid pro-trade voting record in Congress, which was hailed by importers and apparel brands on Monday but stirred concern in the U.S. textile industry.
Ryan, who is cast as a controversial figure in Congress, notably because of his aggressive plan to dramatically cut government spending and overhaul Medicare and other entitlement programs, has not been vocal on trade issues but he has been supportive.
