WASHINGTON (AP) — Likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney says he was attracted to Paul Ryan because of his passion for making a difference.

Newly named running mate Ryan says he and Romney share the same values, and the Wisconsin congressman says he has the kind of experience that complements Romney's skills.

The two made the comments Sunday in an interview that aired on CBS' "60 Minutes."

Ryan says he wants to help Romney carry out a vision to help Americans get jobs and get the country back on track.

Romney says he was intrigued by Ryan and was inclined to choose him as running mate for some time, but kept his mind open.
