This Sunday, a special edition of "Meet the Press:" Who is Paul Ryan? Mitt Romney announced the Wisconsin congressman as his running mate early Saturday morning and now both parties are racing to define this "young gun" conservative. Joining us, three unique voices in that effort: RNC Chairman and fellow Wisconsinite, Reince Priebus; Governor of Ryan's home state, Scott Walker (R-WI); and Obama campaign senior political strategist David Axelrod.
Plus: A live report from Romney’s VP rollout tour in Virginia, including how the candidate made his decision, from NBC’s Peter Alexander.
Then: What impact will Mitt Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as a vice presidential running mate have on the future of the race? What factors drove his decision? Our roundtable weighs in: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow; NBC’s Chief White House Correspondent and Political Director Chuck Todd; National Review editor Rich Lowry; the Washington Post’s Dan Balz, and author and radio talk show host Bill Bennett, for whom Ryan was a speechwriter while Bennett was Secretary of Education.
David Gregory is the moderator of “Meet the Press.” Betsy Fischer is the executive producer, Adam Verdugo is the senior producer, Chris Donovan and Ilana Marcus Drimmer are producers.
