[VIDEO BELOW] Reid Pillifant Reorts: Representative Nan Hayworth, a freshman Republican representing the Hudson Valley, endorsed the pick this morning in an appearance on CNN’s “Early Start,” calling Ryan “sincere,” “substantive,” and “principled.”
“He has presented a plan that really will fulfill the obligations we have to those most in need and those relying on our safety net,” Hayworth said. “And still allow the economy to grow. And that’s the key to making all of our future opportunities succeed.”
Asked if she was concerned about Ryan’s proposed cuts to women’s health and health care, Hayworth said she wasn’t.
“Not at all,” Hayworth said. “Because women’s concerns are the same as those of every other American, primarily, they are that we have an economy that can accommodate their needs, their family’s needs, that will allow them to have jobs and to have growth.”
