NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is appearing alongside his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.

Romney says Ryan is a man of what he calls “great steadiness” and “unquestioned integrity.” The former Massachusetts governor says Ryan is a “shining exception” in a political world of pettiness.

The two appeared together for the first time as the Republican presidential ticket on Saturday morning in Virginia. They faced supporters while standing on the USS Wisconsin, a retired World War II battleship.

Just hours after his campaign confirmed Ryan as his selection, Romney says Ryan won’t demonize his opponents. Romney says that Democrats may disagree with Ryan’s policies, but he doesn’t know anyone who doesn’t respect his character and judgment.
